In 2024, Sholom Park will begin a new volunteer program called Friends of Sholom. Volunteer responsibilities will include light park maintenance, sharing the history and vision of Sholom Park, and enforcing tranquility guidelines with park guests. The program will include orientation and training. Weekend and weekday volunteer opportunities are available. If you are interested in becoming a Friends of Sholom volunteer, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
These areas are accessible to those with limited mobility. Please note that Florida weather is unpredictable and some areas while normally barrier free may require assistance with minor obstacles, temporary washouts, or other obstacles on the trail.
There are handicap accessible parking spaces available at the front of our parking lot.
There are handicap accessible bathrooms located at our pavilion.
Our park offers 2.4 miles of paved trails for those with mobility challenges.

AMERICANS WITH DISABILITIES (ADA) POLICY
Sholom Park is conscientious in our efforts to ensure that our park, facilities, programs, and services are user-friendly for all visitors, including those with disabilities. We commit to provide access to as many individuals in our community as possible and to ensure compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. Sholom Park will not discriminate due to one’s disability or impairment and will not exclude said persons from equitable access to Sholom Park or from participation in any program/activity or event at Sholom Park. Our goal is to provide equal access to the Park, facilities, recreation programs and services within and to treat everyone with dignity and respect. If you require an accommodation because of a disability, please contact us using the button below to request one of our ADA Request Forms to be mailed or emailed to you. We will make every effort to consider your request for an accommodation.
We only allow working Service Animals, in accordance with the American with Disabilities Act (ADA). Under the ADA, “a service animal is a dog that has been individually trained to work or perform tasks for assisting a person with a disability.” Service dogs are working animals, not pets. Dogs whose sole function is to provide comfort or emotional support do not qualify as service animals under the ADA. Pets, comfort animals, emotional support or therapy animals are not permitted at Sholom Park.
