The new 2.3-acre park will be a unique and special gathering space for residents, workers and students of Creative Village, Parramore and downtown Orlando. Creative Village Development is the development partner.

Luminary Green will showcase a large, welcoming lawn for residents, students, workers and visitors to gather, play and enjoy the outdoors. The lawn will host events for unorganized recreation and feature landscaped areas shaded with canopy trees and seating. Luminary Green will also include a dedicated area to feature the names of community luminaries.

Initial luminaries will be named at the ribbon cutting for the park with the option to add more names in the future. The city is currently exploring ideas for the physical feature on which these names may be engraved, stamped or illuminated.

The park will be activated with decorative and interactive light installations illuminating the park from day to night and will also include a large artistic circular trellis that will serve as the aesthetic cornerstone of the park and provide additional shaded area for park patrons.

Luminary Green is located at Creative Village, a $1.5 billion public private partnership between the City of Orlando and its Master Developer, Creative Village Development, to transform 68 acres of underutilized city-owned land into a mixed-use, Innovation District.

The construction manager for Luminary Green is The Collage Companies and VHB provided design/engineering services.

Construction on the park is expected to be completed in the second half of 2021.
