Tallahassee City Parks

As of June 5, 2022, this is the list of parks on the official PDF. Some of them, like the Animal Services Center, may not be “parks” per se, and there are a few which are in planning and not yet open (marked as “future”). I’ll leave these on the list and make notes as we encounter them. (Note: They have 87 line items on their PDF, but there are only 86, as #72 is skipped. I took me a few times trying to find my error before I saw their numbering error.)
