Magnolia Park on Binion Road along the shores of Lake Apopka will soon have its official grand re-opening.
Join Mayor Jerry L. Demings and District 2 Orange County Commissioner Christine Moore on Monday, August 8th at 9 a.m. for the official ribbon cutting.
The renovation project at Magnolia Park started with funding years ago, and now park goers will enjoy a fantastic new pier, brand new bathrooms, an eco-education center, an inclusive playground, and more. The inclusive playground is sure to be a hit with families. It is state-of-the-art.
The eco-education center is sure to be a location for area schools to put on their field trip rotation. Inside this center, students can learn about Lake Apopka with the water just out the door of the center. Years ago when Commissioner Moore wrote her book “Ahahopka”, she began visiting schools and encouraging students and teachers to take field trips to Magnolia Park. This is a living science lesson for area fourth-graders to discuss the water in the lake, how it got that way, and how all of us right now can work to restore Lake Apopka to its original glory. The education center continues that theme and hopefully this year the first group of students will enjoy visiting the eco-education center!
Additionally at Magnolia Park, hikers and bike riders can use the 14.6-mile (29.2 miles roundtrip) Lake Apopka Loop Trail. It takes you to the Lake County line. This is a perfect way to have fun as you camp overnight at Magnolia Park. Tents and RVs are accepted. All campsites have fire rings, grills, picnic tables, lantern hangers, water, and electricity. Pets are allowed if properly registered.
What we have in Orange County’s District 2 is a treasure and you’re asked to be present at Magnolia Park on Monday, Aug. 8, 2022, at 9 a.m. as a new era begins on the shores of Lake Apopka!
