A 123-acre park, Twin Lakes Park serves as a training base for minor and major league baseball. Professional baseball games are open to the public at no charge from February to October. A large picnic pavilion and open space are available for rentals. Many special events are held on the grounds including: family reunions, weddings, corporate picnics, dog shows and musical events.

​In 1970, the Twin Lakes Park complex was built, owned and operated by the Kansas City Royals baseball organization. The Royals first used the facility as an academy for young, talented baseball players.
Later, this initial concept was abandoned in favor of a minor league training facility. Sarasota County purchased the complex in 1986. Since that time, the Royals, Mets, Twins, Indians, Reds, Dodgers and Orioles, as well as foreign teams from Japan and Korea, have all trained here.
In March of 1987, the Sarasota County Parks and Recreation Department moved its administrative operations to Twin Lakes Park.
In 2005, a new building and the renovated original building became Florida’s fifth building to earn the Gold-level Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification. The designation recognizes buildings and grounds that are environmentally responsible, profitable and healthy places to live and work.

This site has been recognized for its Florida-Friendly Landscaping™ practices. The Florida-Friendly Landscaping™ program recognizes the use of environmentally friendly garden gardening and landscaping practices. Florida-Friendly Landscaping™ minimizes the use of potable water for irrigation, avoids the runoff of excess fertilizers and pesticides from the landscape and provides habitats for wildlife. They can take any form, from more conventional and manicured to more natural. It’s how you maintain your yard that ultimately determines if it’s Florida-friendly. Landscapes are evaluated based on a checklist of Florida-Friendly Landscaping™ practices. For more information on Florida-Friendly Yard recognition, contact UF/IFAS Extension Sarasota County.
