The park will be located along Princeton Street near John Young Parkway and Orange Blossom Trail. The space will also house Orlando’s Tennis Centre featuring more than a dozen new courts, plus walking and biking trails. Crews outside continue to redevelop Princeton Street down to four lanes of traffic. Dyer told News 6 he expects the park to be completed sometime during summer 2021.
