Press release from Tinsley Creative/Bonnet Springs Park

Lakeland, FL., June 9, 2022 – Bonnet Springs Park is proud to announce an official grand opening date of October 22, 2022. Located just outside of downtown Lakeland, the 168-acre park serves to unify the city’s diverse population by providing engaging opportunities in education and recreation.

Strategically positioned between Tampa and Orlando just minutes off I-4, Bonnet Springs Park is the perfect location to showcase Central Florida’s Place of Play. Once a railyard, these grounds served to connect communities, cities and states. The repurposing of the property will allow Bonnet Springs Park to provide connections that will spark an ecological renaissance in our community.

“We are so proud to debut Bonnet Springs Park to Lakeland and Central FL this October.  We are very thankful for our community of generous donors that has made this project possible.  It’s been a long time coming, and our grand opening will show the wait was worth it!  It’s about time to Escape, Engage, and Explore at Bonnet Springs Park!”, said Josh Henderson, CEO of Bonnet Springs Park.
