The sports complex has a swimming pool. It's run by Winter Haven Leisure services. I don't know what it would cost for non residents to use it.
Years ago, I used to take Tai Chi classes there. There was a small charge that I paid as a non-resident.
There is also an art gallery in that complex; however, I am unsure about the hours nor if it's something your kids would enjoy.

I think Eileen's suggestion was a good one. At the corner of 17 and Cypress Gardens Blvd. is a big sports complex with lots of fields. I don't know if there is anything going on there or not. I'll echo Theresa's invitation to join us at the Lakeland Square Mall for the team walk this Saturday morning at 9a.m. Children are always welcome at all team walks!
We hope to see you there!

I don't know anything about WH but, I know that we are having our team walk this Saturday and the kids are more than welcome!! The stores are not open and it is a safe environment since there are not many people there so, it is safe to kind of let them loose??!!! Just an idea....
Hugs,
Theresa

I am heading to NW Winter Haven on Friday to find the SS office.

Is there anyone familiar with the area and can give suggestions on things I can do with the kiddos. Not looking to spend too much money, but they want to have some fun.
