The Elinor Klapp-Phipps Park – through the cooperative efforts of the Northwest Florida Water Management District, the City of Tallahassee, and the property owner, Colin Phipps – was purchased in October of 1992. It is a beautiful 670 acre tract of land on the eastern shore of Lake Jackson.

The City purchased 162 acres outright, containing two existing active recreation areas. The Meadows Soccer Complex on Millers Landing Road will continue to function as a youth and adult soccer facility, and the Meridian Park area has been re-developed as a multi-use youth sports complex. The vast majority of the park, over 600 acres, will be utilized for passive forms of recreation and environmental education.

Located at 4000 N. Meridian Road, Tallahassee, FL
