Sheridan Stationside Village/Charles F. Vollman Community Park
As part of the redevelopment project called Sheridan Stationside Village happening in the area along Interstate 95 between Taft Street and Sheridan Street, the City of Hollywood has gained a new 6 acre community park. This new recreational area features a distinctive oak hammock and unique coral rock house. The City of Hollywood Department of Parks, Recreation and Cultural Arts has developed a plan for this park.
Neighborhood meetings were held on June 3 and July 8, 2015 where design concepts were presented to the community and feedback was gathered. Additionally, the City held a community walk-through of the project site on June 21, 2015. Residents had the opportunity to walk the property to see the proposed lay-out and offer feedback and suggestions.
The final 6 acre passive park includes an eight foot concrete circuitous walking path, benches, drinking fountain, waste receptacles, pet receptacles, bike racks, and enhanced lighting. The site also includes 2 acres for retention/detention and an old farm coral rock house. The developer has contributed $50,000 toward the remodel of the house in a later phase. The City will use these funding for a grant match to assess the home's needs.
On September 16, 2015 a resolution of the City Commission approved naming the park located at 1900 to 2300 North 29th Avenue as "Charles F. Vollman Park" Resolution R-2015-290
A dedication and grand opening of the park was held on Friday, June 17, 2016. To view a full gallery of photos from the event please visit the City's Facebook page. CLICK HERE
