Deputy Scott Pine Community Park Groundbreaking

WHAT: Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs, District 1 Commissioner Betsy VanderLey and former District 1 Commissioner Scott Boyd will be joined by Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings and Orange County Public School (OCPS) officials for a groundbreaking ceremony for Deputy Scott Pine Community Park, which will be located on a 19.5-acre property.

The West Orange County park will pay tribute to the Orange County Sheriff Deputy Scott Pine who lost his life February 11, 2014, after responding to a call in a southwest Orange County neighborhood. Deputy Pine’s widow Bridget Pine and their three children will participate in the groundbreaking ceremony.

Orange County and Orange County Public Schools will share the 19.5-acre park, which will have two multi-purpose fields. One is for soccer, and the other will serve as the off-site football stadium for Windermere High School.

Total cost of the park is $9.7 million with $3.7 million being funded by OCPS. In addition, $3.7 million for the park is funded by INVEST dollars. *INVEST in Our Home for Life is the $300 million initiative that was launched by Mayor Teresa Jacobs at the State of the County in 2015. The Mayor earmarked $20 million for construction and enhancements of parks and recreational facilities countywide.

Completion is expected in early 2018.
