Barber Park Expansion
Orange County Mayor Jerry L. Demings, Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer and Orange County District 3 Mayra Uribe attended the groundbreaking for two new multi-purpose recreational fields and a splash pad at Barber Park.
Barber Park is an 81.5-acre community park at 5301 Gatlin Avenue. Orange County manages and operates the park, and owns more than 66 acres of site. The City of Orlando owns the 15 acres for the new multi-purpose fields and is leasing it to the County.
Currently, Barber Park offers several sports amenities for basketball, volleyball, roller hockey and soccer, as well as, multiple picnic and rest areas, walkways and a dog park. The $3.75 million project will provide the addition of two new fields, a splash pad, a sunning area, field lighting, additional parking and a storm-water pond with a large aquatic planting area. The project is expected to be complete by fall 2019.
