Neighborhood Parks

Neighborhood parks integrate open space and active play and can range in size from 1 to 20 acres. Their purpose is to provide recreational activities for visitors and residents of a neighborhood area. Playgrounds provide healthy activity for children although they may be loud when occupied by them.  Therefore they should be screened from adjacent residents and occupied buildings or located at the center of larger parks systems.

Examples: Park on Park (Sanford) Wadeview Park (Orlando).
