Orlando is opening a new public park this week, with The Grove being unveiled in the Packing District.

Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer and District 3 City Commissioner Robert F. Stuart will open the park to the public on Wednesday, May 31, with the customary ribbon-cutting ceremony.

The Grove park stretches over 66 acres of land donated by Dr. Phillips Charities and will feature a 1.5-mile walking/biking trail, preserved wetlands area and an outdoor pavilion.

The event will also see the debut of the new-look Orlando Tennis Centre, which will offer up 11 clay courts, six hard courts (two are multipurpose for crucial pickleball face-offs) and a clubhouse.

The Packing District is a mixed-use development area located in West College Park centered around the intersection of Orange Blossom Trail and Princeton Street.

The ribbon-cutting event takes place at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, May 31, at 2002 Packing District Way.  On Saturday at 10 a.m. there will be a “Party at the Grove” with live music, food and kids’ activities. Both events are free.
