Due to Covid-19......

The City of Maitland has not yet opened up any of the inside facilities but the playgrounds and basketball courts are back open. The Maitland Community Park is open for exercise, walking your dog and playing tennis.  All other parks are open for exercise as well and still remain opened at 8am and close at dusk.  The Boat Ramp at Fort Maitland Park is open and to get a day pass ($6) you can go to "facilities" on this site and register for the day.  Annual stickers will expire June 30 and the new stickers will be available for purchase at the Maitland Community Park at the end of June.  Remember to bring your valid boat registration and driver's license with you to purchase.  We hope this will all be over soon and we can get all of our facilities back open.  Check back with us to see when we are fully open again.  You can call us at 407-875-2848 anytime.  Thank you and stay healthy!!!!
