Northeast Regional Park Polk County Florida

Less than half a mile from our place in the sun, situated on US27 Going South from the US192 you will find the Northeast Regional Park – and what a hidden gem.

The park is open from 7am to 10pm.  There is ample parking available.

Down at the bottom end of the park there is a wonderful lake – there were a few people fishing this morning.  The water is clear and you could see the fish.

There are several picnic pavilions with BBQ facilities

3 walking trails – all less than 1 mile in distance, taking you through the oaks and Spanish Moss.  There were plenty of dragon flies, crickets and birds around today.

Moving up the park there are 2 dog parks – separated depending on size of dog!  With dog hurdles and doggie bags with waste disposal units right there.  There are even 2 gates to enter the parks to avoid any runaway pets!

2 basketball courts, soccer and American football pitches, tennis courts and a fantastic children’s playground with climbing frames, swings, slides and even adult seat swings for those watching the kids play.

And it’s all free…..
