City of Kissimmee | Kissimmee Lakefront Park

About This Project

The Kissimmee Lakefront Park is located on the west shore of Lake Tohopekaliga in Kissimmee, Florida. Working with the community planning firm of Glatting Jackson Kercher Anglin, Inc., the conceptual master plan was developed with the goal of revitalizing an under-utilized existing park and re-establishing it’s connection to the fabric of the city. Working in concert with the planning effort, Stephen Boruff, AIA Architects + Planners, Inc. developed an architectural vocabulary that facilitates both the provision of updated and functional structures, as well as the enhancement of the overall park aesthetic.

 

Each structure employs an openness which frames the views of the lake. The social pavilions, picnic shelters, public toilet facilities and multi-purpose open spaces, along with the streetscape beautifications will bring activity to the lakefront and remove barriers between the lake and the downtown. Thus, the city will be reconnected with a key natural resource and a revitalized sense of community.
