The Seminole Indian name of this 138.6-acre urban park, Topeekeegee Yugnee, means “meeting or gathering place,” appropriate for a park known for its shady picnic areas, many shelters, and a gazebo that is often booked for small weddings and receptions.

T.Y. Park is home to Castaway Island water park (open seasonally), a full-hookup RV campground with Wi-Fi, 13 picnic shelters, an abundance of open picnic areas, and a large, open field suitable for a variety of family activities. Especially popular with our health-conscious patrons is the two-mile loop of paved pathways for walking, jogging, skating, and biking. Join our walking club and register your miles to earn incentives. Other popular areas within the park are the large shaded playground, basketball and tennis courts, the fishing pier, and the scenic lake water fountain.
