Construction Closures

  • The Silver Star Recreation Center will be undergoing building enhancements for the safety of the community when the center is utilized as an emergency shelter. These enhancements may entail the closure of certain amenities of the building over the next few months. We will do our best to provide you sufficient notice of the closure of these amenities, so that you can use our other Orange Recreation Centers during this timeframe if they are not undergoing the same enhancements as well. Questions? Email parks@ocfl.net.

To make a reservation, please call the park directly at 407-254-9250; leave a detailed message if you reach voicemail. Please note that Orange County Parks and Recreation requires 30 days or more to schedule and complete payment and paperwork for all rentals.
