New 6-acre park opens June 17 between Taft and Sheridan

As part of the redevelopment project called Sheridan Stationside Village happening in the area just west of Interstate 95 between Taft Street and Sheridan Street, the City of Hollywood has gained a new 6 acre community park.  Once a trailer park, this new recreational area features a distinctive oak hammock and a historic coral rock house.

A dedication and grand opening for the Charles F. Vollman Park at 2933 Taft Street will be held on Friday, June 17, 2016 at 9 a.m. All are invited to attend.

It includes a total of six acres of which there are four acres that are usable. The remaining two acres are for retention and detention, according to Chuck Ellis, director of Parks, Recreation and Cultural Arts.

It is considered a passive park with benches, drinking fountain, waste receptacles, bike racks, light poles and a concrete circuitous path.

The developer contributed $50,000 to toward the remodeling of the rock house at a later phase. “We will use this building for a grant match and to assess what exactly the building will require to refurbish it,” said Ellis.

The family of community activist Charles E. Vollman is expected to attend the ceremony.
