Solary Park will include displays that recount the history and founding of the City of Oviedo. Park patrons will be able to walk the perimeter of the park while learning of Oviedo’s past. Solary Wharf was one of the primary points that early Oviedo settlers disembarked from steamships on Lake Jessup after traveling on the St. John’s River.
Construction of Solary Park will include an enhanced stormwater management system allowing development of the historic commercial district. The construction of a communal commercial treatment pond will allow local business owners to purchase capacity credits to convey and treat the drainage from their properties via the stormwater management system. The project is essential to facilitate and provide incentive for development and redevelopment in the historic downtown area.
Solary Park will be located at the corner of Franklin Street and Geneva Drive.
The project is currently under construction and is estimated to be completed in the spring of 2021.
