Beautiful park on Sylvan Lake with something for everyone. Enter the park and you will see many athletic fields, tennis courts, racquetball, and even volleyball courts.

Its all available here. The trail (compact cinder/dirt) is almost exactly 1 mi. There is an outdoor volleyball court and horshoe pits on the eastside of the park along with bathrooms and a paly area for the kids. The tennis courts are in excellent condition.

This park mostly has soccer and lacrosse fields. In the back they have gym set for kids and several restrooms around but they are a bit old. The Orlando Lions have their practice field here, also. A few geocaches are hidden here.

The play area was dirty and run down. There was absolutely no one there but us. Restrooms were also very dirty. Would not go there again.

Along the Wekiva Trail ( part of the the Seminole County Trail system) , stop at this small park for a quick escape from the day's demands.

This park is nice to take your kids for a nature walk, or to play at the play ground. Also very good for team sports. Soccer and flag football teams have their games there on the weekend. Good fields for practicing the sports also.

Sylvan Lake Park rocks. Tennis courts, Soccer fields, fishing and just about an area for any outdoor activity you can think of. Great trails and picnic pavilions. This a great park, make sure to take advantage of it.

We enjoyed our visit here and was so perfect for families to spend time. We stopped on a site seeing Sunday afternoon and found it so refreshing to see people from the area relaxed with all ages finding things to see and do.......residents friendly and felt safe and happy....sorry could not stay but a couple hours...
