Phase I Trail & Park
On October 13, 2020, the Board of County Commissioners approved the Rolling Hills Community Park Phase I Trail and Park Plan incorporating changes based on public feedback received through this website. A previous plan presented on this page can be found here.
Below is the video of the presentation given to BCC as well as the newly approved plan.
Thank you for your participation in the public input process.
The following changes were made to the original Phase I plan presented through this website in response to the public input received.
The Central Gathering parking area was removed and the existing parking lot shown to be renovated in Phase 1 to accommodate parking needs and reduce cut-through traffic.
The southwest trailhead was modified to remove the small parking area and restroom building in Phase 1. A pedestrian connection to Raymond Ave. and a shade pavilion remain.
The Crane Cove area along North St. was more fully developed to serve as the southern park access point with parking, capitalizing on a parking area that was already in the plan and adding connecting sidewalks to the primary trail in the park.

This plan focuses on constructing the primary multi-purpose trail, over 4 miles in length, connecting the entire geography of the park. The alignment of the trail responds to existing site conditions and future vision for the Park Places. The Phase 1 Trail and Park includes areas of planting and park amenities, including elements funded in partnership with a grant from Florida Communities Trust (FCT), which are labeled on the plan.
