The new Estero Community Park is a fifty-five acre facility that adjoins the 10 acre football park constructed in 2001. The new park boasts a 37,000 square foot recreation building complete with a gymnasium that accommodates either three full sized basketball courts, or four tournament quality volleyball courts. The building also has two multi-purpose meeting rooms, computer lab, teen room, art studio, and catering kitchen.
Outside, there is a five acre central lawn that faces the rear of the building and a stage designed to host community events and concerts. The lawn is surrounded by a walking path and benches.
There are also two top quality playgrounds, designed to meet the needs of every age group of children. Three sand volleyball courts are located near the playgrounds and many of the various picnic shelters located throughout the park.
A world-class 5k cross-country trail winds throughout the park. Its design was contributed to by the Estero High School cross-country coach.
Cost for the park was approximately $12 million for construction, and $810,000 for design.Estimated Completion Date:
