January 29, 2019 - Lee County Government (LCG) Department of Parks and Recreation received a construction update from the City of Sanford on the new splash pad and the playground and facility renovations at Kiwanis Family Park that began on Monday, January 21st. 

Kiwanis Family Park remains open to the public during construction but visitors will notice that the old playground has been removed and the existing bathroom facility is scheduled to be removed next week.  Portable toilets will be placed on site for public use.

Parking is limited and restricted to the paved area by the park gazebo.  Access to the exercise and walking trails will be available from the paved lot and will be marked by construction fencing.  Visitors are reminded to use caution when accessing the park as this is an active construction site.
