Ronnie Van Zant Memorial Park provides both activity-based and resource-based facilities. Activity-based facilities include two basketball courts, four tennis courts, one soccer field, one softball field, seven covered pavilions with picnic areas, one volleyball court, and a fishing pond with four fishing piers. This park was really built for and around kids. At the first entrance to the park is an extremely nice playground with all the jungle gym stuff. Follow the road around to the stocked fishing pond. Bass, Catfish and Brim abound, but be aware of the regulations at this park. The pond is managed by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission (FWC). You can only fish here (as an adult) if you are accompanied by a child of 16 years old or younger. Florida residents 65 years of age or older are also permitted.
