The Dr. Phillips Community Park recently opened to rave reviews at least from the looks of this guy. The new park is located adjacent to Sand Lake Elementary on Buena Vista Woods Dr. just past the Diamond Cove and Emerald Forest subdivisions. There’s also a pathway from Darlene Rd. so residents from this area can get to the park with just a short walk.
There’s so many activities here alongside views of Big Sand Lake. The water park seems to be a big hit, but there’s also a lighted baseball field, 2 lighted soccer fields, 2 sand volleyball courts, basketball court, an amphitheater, playground, dog park, picnic areas, playground, and walking trails along the lake. A sign at the park indicates that there is a charge for use of the water park but I didn’t see anyone collecting entrance fees when I visited.
It’s just a great new place and another reason why SW Orlando is such a good place to call home.
