The City of Deltona dedicated its newest City recreation site, Audubon Park April 19 with an official ribbon-cutting. The 60 acre park, located on Lush Lane off Doyle Road, was created as a stormwater treatment site and was further developed as an ecological educational facility. One of the noted features of Audubon Park are the more than forty verified bird species that nest and feed with the boundaries, that makes this location a prime spot for bird watching and ecologicaltargeted interests and hobbies.
The scheduled speakers for the Dedication included Deltona Mayor John Masiarczyk, Volusia County Councilwoman Pat Northey, and Faith Jones, with the Seminole Audubon Society. In addition to the ribbon-cutting, the Audubon Society conducted a walking tour of the site along the Park's trail system. There are two mulched trails that span the length of the park, leading to the Volusia County Rails2Sea Trail.
Construction on the park began in April 2010 and was finished in June 2012. For more information, please contact Jerry Mayes at firstname.lastname@example.org.
