Parks of Poinciana
The pride of Poinciana is our parks and recreation facilities. It is important that residents and visitors of Poinciana not only enjoy the parks and facilities, but also feel safe using them.
That is why our Public Works Department has a special division that maintains our parks daily to assure that equipment in the parks is safe to use. While you are enjoying the park, if you see anything that needs attention please call Public Works at 863-427-0900 ext 604.
