Lake County, FL – The Lake County Office of Parks and Trails will now manage all operations and maintenance responsibilities of Hickory Point Recreation Park (27341 State Road 19, Tavares, FL), including the Hickory Point Pavilion, sand volleyball courts, volleyball field office building, and soccer fields.

Beginning June 10, 2024, those interested in renting the soccer fields, sand volleyball courts, or the volleyball field office building, should contact the Office of Parks and Trails directly. Rental requests for the Hickory Point Pavilion should be submitted to the Office of Parks and Trails immediately.

To reserve a facility or request more information, please call 352-253-4950 or email parksandtrails@lakecountyfl.gov.

Due to improvements to the facility, Lake County’s Hickory Point Recreation Complex (located at 27341 FL-19, Tavares, FL) has planned partial closers for on-site boat ramps.

To ensure boating access to Lake Harris throughout construction, the facility’s boat ramps will close in phases. The east ramps will be closed for phase one, while the west ramps remain open. Once complete, the east ramps will reopen, and the west ramps will begin construction for phase two. This will leave half of the park’s boat ramps open for use at any given time during the construction period. Patrons are asked to adhere to ramp closure signage and new traffic routes through various stages of the project.

Construction is estimated to last 260 days, and will begin Wednesday, May 15.

For more information, please call 352-253-4950 or email parksandtrails@lakecountyfl.gov.
