Tom Brown Park
Continuing with the renovations of the Lake Leon area at Tom Brown Park, the playground will be closed during construction. We anticipate this area being closed to the public from 10/13 through 11/14. Construction will consist of new sidewalks connecting to the playground and shelter, as well as a new border around the playground. If you have any questions about this project, please call Chris at 891-5176 or David at 891-5478.
Hours of Operation: Sunrise to Sunset
Located in the eastern part of Tallahassee, just east of Capital Circle SE between Mahan Drive and Apalachee Parkway, sits a huge park with everything you could want to do in it. This is the City of Tallahassee's premier place to play, with numerous baseball and softball fields, tennis courts, and wide open spaces
Tom Brown Park also hosts many of Tallahassee's special events, including the 4th of July Fireworks Show. Large special events are held here periodically, so you will be sure to frequent this park quite a lot.
The park was dedicated on January 30, 1977 and named after Thomas Irvin Brown, Jr., a coach for Leon High School (1944-1946). He was also a coach for the Babe Ruth League for 20 years and a Leon County Commissioner for 14 years. His time, efforts and energies touched the lives of many of our leading young citizens. Tom Brown played the game of sports by giving it his all!
