PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. — Port St. Lucie residents are invited to attend a neighborhood meeting July 7 to discuss plans for Tradition Regional Park.

The session will be held at Tradition Town Hall.

In order to comply with social distancing guidelines, two separate meetings will be held consecutively. The first runs from 4 to 5 p.m., and the second runs directly after from 5 to 6 p.m. Residents who are unable to attend in person are encouraged to attend via Zoom.

The proposed park is envisioned as an active regional park, with fields for common sports like baseball and soccer, a multi-purpose sports field, and potential regional features such as a water park, dog park, adventure playground, or space for food trucks. Additionally, there are proposals to include natural features like hiking trails, observation areas, and sites for canoe and kayak launch.

Tradition is an 8,200-acre master-planned community in west Port St. Lucie that was incorporated into the city in 2003. In recent years, it has been the site of plans for commercial development, specifically the 1,200-acre portion of Tradition called Southern Grove. The proposed Tradition Regional Park, just west of the Tradition Parkway terminus, falls in this area.

The meeting is being hosted in part by Mattamy Homes, a national home building company behind this and other development projects in Southern Grove and the larger Port St. Lucie area.

You can register to attend either of the two meetings via Zoom here and here.
