Within Glendale is a small area of which many residents are unaware. It is a “pocket park” on Florida Avenue, just off Thomasville Road. Also referred to as a “passive park,” it is a Tallahassee Parks and Recreation Department-maintained park that is smaller than five acres. Most pocket parks do not provide the same amenities as those often found at their larger counterparts. Known as Glendale Playground, this park is just over an acre and provides a simple place for neighbors, families, and friends to gather.
