The Friends of Lake Griffin State Park

A Need for Golf Carts
Lake Griffin State Park staff and volunteers use golf carts to move workers, tools, and materials for repairs, maintenance, and special projects. They also use the carts to take visitors with disabilities around the park. The park needs several carts to replace old ones. If you have a new golf cart or plan to purchase one, we invite you to donate your old cart to the park.
Friends of Lake Griffin State Park (FLGSP.org) is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) citizen support organization dedicated to supporting the park through volunteering, fundraising, and in-kind donations. Your golf cart donation may be tax deductible.
For those that have an injury or disability, a golf cart can be used for transportation around the park. A park ranger can show you plants and wildlife along a trail, or transport you to the playground, pavilion, or amphitheater.
