Enjoy the Fall with SolarNow at Your Favorite Parks!
The fall typically means a few family favorites: pumpkin-spiced everything, the start of the holidays and finally some cooler weather coming through Florida. With the season underway, what better way to enjoy the weather than at your local park?
Throughout Florida, you’ll find plenty of SolarNow installations with solar trees or solar canopies at parks near you. In fact, we have a few new partnerships that we’re excited to share with you.
Here are our top picks to enjoy Mother Nature this fall and winter season, where you and the family can revel in the outdoors and learn about solar energy:
C.B. Smith Park, Pembroke Pines (NEW)
C.B. Smith Park offers a sprawling water park with four 50-foot-tall waterslides and a lazy river, a large campground, AllGolf – a family golfing center, a tennis complex and a large area for special events. Enjoy a picnic, play racquetball, do some fishing or explore the campgrounds, and stop by the solar trees to catch some shade in between all the fun.
Rotary Park, Hollywood
Are you a sports fan? Rotary Park in Hollywood serves primarily as a baseball park, featuring eight fields and five batting cages.
