Colin’s Park

This 2-acre riverfront family park was built in memory of Colin Every, a toddler who accidentally drowned and lost his life in March 1994. Colin is the son of a Daytona Beach Firefighter/paramedic and elementary school teacher.

The park is designed with three themes: safety, recreation and recycling.

For safety, there are several land and water safety programs offered to local groups and children’s groups by firefighters and paramedics.

For recreation, there’s an open area used as a children’s playground for group activities, a picnic pavilion with outdoor grills, a fishing dock, and benches where you can sit to enjoy the views.

The park was created with environmental theme, to create awareness on the importance of recycling and other environmental concerns. Park benches, picnic tables and the playground equipment are all made of recycled materials. You will also find educational signs around the park which highlight what has been made from the recyclables.
