Lake June Park

up for funds

Share this story:


Based on plans, the town of Lake Placid will tear down this exiting pavilion/restroom building at Lake June Park for a retention pond, and will build new facilities just south of it: A large pavilion (60 feet by 40 feet), small pavilion (40 feet by 30 feet) and restrooms, similar to those at Stuart Park. Today, the town will ask for $60,000 from the Tourist Development Council to help pay the $294,200 cost for this phase of improvements to the park.


Replacement of the current pavillion and restrooms at Lake June Park will take place over three phases. The Highlands County Recreation and Parks Advisory Committee has approved nearly $300,000 for the first phase of the project, minus the first $16,500, to be paid by the town. Today, the town will ask the Tourist Development Council to cover $60,000 of the RPAC contribution.
