ORLANDO, Fla. (FOX 35 WOFL) - The City of Orlando is planning to spend big bucks to help beautify Lake Lorna Doone Park. City leaders say that it is about time the park gets a face lift, but it comes with a price tag of $8 million.
Lake Lorna Doone Park sits next to Camping World Stadium. The city plans to work with 'Florida Citrus Sports Events' to make the improvements. The changes to the park include a playground, a new pathway around the lake, a fountain, and a splash pad.
The park has seen it's share of trouble though, as a man was killed there in a shooting in January. However, it's still a source of pride for the neighborhood and volunteers have worked to maintain it.
If the City Council approves the plans on Tuesday, the city will pay $5 million for the improvements. Florida Citrus Sports will kick in the other $3 million.
