Find Your Florida PALM COAST, FL – June 6, 2017 –  Get ready to explore the sugar mill-themed playground, stroll the perimeter path, play with your pups at the Dog Park and enjoy your favorite sports at James F. Holland Memorial Park!

The reopening of Palm Coast’s oldest and largest community park, located at 18 Florida Park Drive, is set for Friday, June 16.

A ribbon-cutting will be at 5:30 p.m. June 16, followed by an evening of games, music, refreshments and giveaways. Mayor Milissa Holland, daughter of the park’s namesake, will speak at the ceremony.

The renovated Holland Park has something for all ages. A ¾-mile walking trail runs along the park’s perimeter. The internal drive through the park is now a full circle, with vehicle access in both directions. Drainage has been improved and parking expanded. The restrooms have been rebuilt. The 26-acre park is also home to the Palm Coast Historical Society headquarters.

The centerpiece of fun at the upgraded park is an expansive playground styled after the Bulow Plantation Sugar Mill. The large, fenced-in playground has coquina rock structures featuring slides, bridges and ladders, a climbing wall, a zip line and an archeological digging area. Children will find adventure as they exercise in the beautiful, shaded park.

Dogs will be inspired to run and play, as well! A new secure entry to the 1.5-acre Dog Park will open onto two separate play areas, one for large dogs and one for small. Wash-down stations have been installed.

For athletics, courts have been resurfaced and refurbished, and fields have been upgraded. The facility has three tennis courts, one junior-sized tennis court, two shuffleboard courts, two basketball courts, four striped pickleball courts, two bocce ball courts, a new sand volleyball court and two large multi-purpose sports fields. Dugouts and bleacher shade coverings have been added to the two baseball fields. There are two horseshoe pits – a first for Holland Park.

It’s playtime at Holland Park! Please join the City of Palm Coast for the re-opening on June 16.
