Park Closures

Trout Creek

A section of the Trout Creek boardwalk is closed while we repair damage caused by a fallen tree. Visitors can access the boardwalk, but can't pass through the damaged section. We expect the repairs to be completed by the end of March or the very beginning of April.

If you have any questions, please call our administrative office at (813) 987-6240.

Flatwoods

On Sunday March 19, beginning at park closing (8 p.m.) a portion of the Flatwoods area of Wilderness Park will be closed to the public. The area stretching from the Bruce B. Downs entrance south along the levee to the Trout Creek water structure gate extending northeast to the four corners area off the loop and back to the Bruce B. Downs entrance will be closed to all traffic during the weekdays (Mondays - Fridays.) For the duration of the project, the site will be open to visitors on the weekends.

We are closing this part of the park for a fire fuels reduction, which means we will use heavy equipment to mechanically clear plant material that can increase the likelihood and intensity of a wild fire.

The Trout Creek water structure gate will be closed during this time frame and visitors will not have access north through this structure to any other Wilderness Park sites.

Anticipated at this time, the project will last for 60 days. We will post updates as we receive them. In the meantime, visitors can access Flatwoods Park and the loop at the Morris Bridge Road entrance, 14302 Morris Bridge Rd., Thonotosassa, FL 33592.

If you have any questions, please call our administrative office at (813) 987-6240.
