Topeekeegee Park in Hollywood, or TY Park, is popular for a wide variety of outdoor activities, including picnicking and walking, running or skating on a path around a lake lined with shady live oaks. Watercraft rentals are offered on weekends.

Why do people enjoy walking and biking at your park
“People love the huge live oaks that provide a cool shade canopy over much of the park. T.Y. Park has the feel of a neighborhood park, while providing the amenities of a large regional park,” Babb says. “The 2-mile walking path draws residents daily as they enjoy the opportunity to experience the scenic walk around the lake.”
