Parks, Recreation, & Cultural Arts Updates and Alerts

Parks, Recreation, Cultural Arts - Storm Updates

The City of Lakeland Parks, Recreation, and Cultural Arts Department provides vital assistance before, during, and after a storm. This may require green spaces and facilities to close as we prepare for the storm, recover from the storm, and provide assistance to emergency workers.

Immediately following a storm, our mission-critical employees report to work assisting the Public Works Department in clearing the right-of-ways, streets, and roadways.

Following any strong wind activity, our trees can have hazards known as "hangers," which are limbs that could fall and injure a park visitor. Parks Division staff inspect* all parks before reopening.

This page will be updated with storm-related info specific to the Parks, Recreation Facilities, Libraries, Cemeteries, and the Cleveland Heights Golf Course.
Visit the City of Lakeland Hurricane page for City-wide updates. 


*Hazards are a normal part of park usage, including falling debris.
