While a reservation is not required to use one of the picnic shelters at our parks, it is highly encouraged. This will confirm that you have a shelter for your event with less worry that it will be taken by someone else who got there first. To rent a shelter, please visit one of our locations (Cypress Forest Recreation Center or State Street Center) with a $50 deposit and fill out the application. For more information on pricing, please see our Rental Information page.

Parking fees apply at the following parks:
Oldsmar residents can purchase annual parking passes for $2.68 to avoid paying daily parking fees. The resident will need to bring their driver’s license and vehicle registration with matching addresses to Cypress Forest Recreation Center in order to purchase.
Residents and non-residents can purchase a recreation card and enjoy classes and activities for a lower price than non-recreation card holder. Residents just need to bring in their driver’s license and Oldsmar water bill to prove their residency. Residents and non-resident applicants will need to fill out our application form and pay the applicable fee. We have an interlocal agreement with Safety Harbor, Dunedin and Tarpon Springs that allows those residents the ability to act as Oldsmar residents; just bring in your valid resident rec card from one of those cities and we will honor it as our own.

East Lake Woodlands residents voted against being annexed in as part of the City of Oldsmar. Though these residents have an Oldsmar address, they are considered residents of unincorporated Pinellas County and do not pay taxes to the City of Oldsmar. Therefore, East Lake Woodlands families are not considered residents of the City of Oldsmar.
Our Cypress Forest Spray Park is open April through November. A $5 per day parking fee is applied at this time. Residents can purchase a parking pass to alleviate those parking fees.
YES! We love when non-residents join our programs. As a non-resident, you have two choices: 1) You can pay a slightly higher program fee (usually 50% higher than the rec card fee) or 2) you can purchase a non-resident rec card and enjoy our programs for the rec card fee.
