There's plenty of laughter, fun, and exploration at Common Ground Park, a public park with a focus on inclusivity. Amid the natural green lawns and tall trees, you'll find a huge colorful playground offering a unique play experience. Many different sections of slides, tunnels, walkways, and ladders make up this non-traditional playground structure. The many different spaces of varying levels of difficulty allow children of all abilities and disabilities to play alongside each other. The park is color coded to signify which areas are appropriate for which age levels. To visit Common Ground Park on your trip to Lakeland, use our Lakeland vacation trip planner.

  • From the butterfly garden, to the slides and ropes, you'll be pleased to find a relaxing and welcoming place just outside the heart of Lakeland. 
  • Nice place to walk around with the couple's look at things the park there right there available it's ok with kids also 
  • Good variety of swings, play sets and activities. Beautiful park and has public restrooms. The grounds are well maintained and grass is soft astroturf. 
  • Great park. One of the best around. Needs more shade and please fix some of the equipment. It's been broke and roped off as long as I've been coming here.
  • Great park inside, but very unsafe! We just had a birthday party here Saturday and a couple of ours guests had their back windows smashed out, and had their purses, wallets, and phones stolen. While on the phone with police we noticed 3 other cars with broken windows and purses stolen. When police arrived after about an hour, they said it happens every week, a couple times a week, and each time is multiple cars!! So enter at your own risk!
  • Amazing park for kids, can get a little crowded since so few other parks are as well appointed with activities and playgrounds in Polk County.
  • Great place for kids to go wild and get outside! It's pretty big and has a good variety of stuff for kids to play on. Be warned, it gets HOT here and there is very little shade. Bring some WATER!
  • This park was awsome kids loved it had to let them get tiered of the sun to want to leave all in all big park, a lot of fun and a lot for the kids to do plus it did look very safe.
