Become a Founding Friend of Bonnet Springs Park in Lakeland

Friends of Bonnet Springs Park Lakeland

Imagine a park where you can stroll along a canopy walk, explore the nature trails, play at Explorations V Children’s Museum, attend a concert on the great lawn, smell the flowers in the sensory gardens, learn about Florida wildlife in the nature center, paddleboat on a lagoon, meet a friend for lunch at the cafe, host an event in the event center or treehouse, watch your children play on the nature playgrounds… sounds amazing right??

That is ALL coming to Lakeland with the creation of Bonnet Springs Park!!

Bonnet Springs Park will open to the public in 2021. If you’ve driven along Memorial Boulvard or Geore Jenkins Boulevard in recent months, you may have noticed the large mountains of dirt taking shape. That is where Bonnet Springs Park will be located – 1025 George Jenkins Blvd, Lakeland, FL 33815.

Unlike most of our other local parks, Bonnet Springs Park is a privately developed public park that depends solely on public support.

Wondering how you can help make this amazing park a success?

There are several opportunities to support Bonnet Springs Park, but the one I’m most passionate about is Friends of Bonnet Springs Park. As a Board Member of FBSP {and somehow Vice-President – not sure who made that decision!} I have been part of the planning process to determine the financial foundation of our Friends group that will allow us to support park projects and event programming for years to come.

Will you join me as a Founding Friend of Bonnet Springs Park?

As a Founding Friend you join a unique group of individuals and families who have demonstrated their support of Bonnet Springs Park prior to the 2021 Grand Opening. Take an active role in supporting Bonnet Springs Park at the ground level for only $30. (Yep – only $30!) It also makes a great gift!

The Benefits:

  • Recognition as a “Founding Friend of Bonnet Springs Park”
  • Friends of Bonnet Springs Park Magnet
  • “Welcome Certificate” to the Park and letter of appreciation
  • Monthly Bonnet Springs Park Email Newsletter
  • Knowing you are one of the original supporters of this brand new park that will be enjoyed by our children and grandchildren!

What is expected of you:

Nothing! We would love for you to learn more about Bonnet Springs Park and share your excitement with neighbors, friends, co-workers, and family as you tell them about this amazing project. Follow along with our progress during construction, and help spread the word as BSP becomes a place for our community to escape, engage, and explore.

Thinking you’ll wait and join when the park opens?

The opportunity to join as a Founding Friend will be available only during park development. As we approach the 2021 opening, our membership structure and pricing will change to include additional benefits, volunteer opportunities, and park events.
