The Cranes Roost Park is a 37-acre jewel in Altamonte Spring’s crown. A stage that floats on a lake with a 900-seat amphitheater is the magical site for memorable concerts and events. Lit paths are a stroller’s delight by night and benches tempt you to linger by day amongst ornamental plants, cool and shady trees and a very refreshing ambience. The smaller Hermit’s Trail is designed with intimate picnics in mind, though there are playgrounds and parks as well for those who are more into sports and activity or for parents who have children. The Lake Lotus Nature Park has great fishing spots and jogging trails, and if there is more that people would like to know as to what activities or events that these parks provide, then the park rangers are glad to provide information on events going on in the area. Water sports are also available at the Lake Oriental Recreational Area. The Sunshine Park and Turnbill Avenue mark the town’s thoughtful development of small parks in various neighborhoods. Altamonte Springs seems to have discovered the secret of providing urban conveniences in surroundings with all the rustic advantages.
