The 768-acre Caloosahatchee Regional Park (CRP) is located on the north side of the Caloosahatchee River. CRP is owned by the state, leased by the Lee County Board of County Commissioners and managed by the Lee County Department of Parks and Recreation.
CRP has been developed in a manner to ensure the conservation and protection of the natural and historical resources while providing resource-based, public, outdoor recreational opportunities that have been approved for state lands and that are compatible with the conservation and protection of these public lands. The site’s diverse vegetation and extensive frontage on the river, coupled with interpretive programs and amenities, provide various opportunities for the public to enjoy and continue to be educated about the importance of the site.
The Lee County Dept. of Parks and Recreation invites the public to review the Land Stewardship Plan for the park and attend this public meeting. The Land Stewardship Plan will be available for review from February 22, 2011 - March 24, 2011 at the Riverdale Branch Library (2421 Buckingham Rd., Fort Myers, FL. 33905), the campground office of CRP and online at the CRP webpage [http://www.leeparks.org/pdf/CRP-Land-Stewardship-Plan-Copy-for-Public-Hearing.pdf].
