Lorenzi Park Re-Opens
Lorenzi Park recently re-opened after a $30 million renovation. New amenities that were added to the 60-acre park include a new splash pad, children’s play areas, tennis courts, baseball fields and basketball courts, picnic and shade structures, and a new band shell on an island in the middle of one of the park’s twin lakes.
