On Wednesday, August 21st, we officially began construction on Fellowship Park! We had an official groundbreaking event with the city on September 25th, and work is well under way. We look forward to enjoying the park with you and your family! For regular updates on the park, be sure to keep an eye on this site and our FACEBOOK PAGE.
The History of Fellowship Park
Fellowship Park began as a vision: a vision that families could experience God's fullness together throughout the week in a fun, safe, beautiful, relaxing space right here on our church grounds. This would be a place where children could play and learn in exciting, innovative play areas, where adults could enjoy a tranquil work ora a brisk jog, where families and the city at large could host majorevents and important personal celebrations, where wonderful memories could be forged and shared, and where fellowship would come naturally.
We cast the vision for Fellowship Park to our congregation in february of 2012, and they responded in a big way. After two months of prayer and many incredible generous financial gifts, Cape Christian's friends and families joined together to complete "Phase 1" of the park in only nine days...just in time for Easter Sunday! What was once a concrete path and a small expanse of grass became a gorgeous fountain and a shaded courtyard filled with beautiful crepe myrtles—what was once a plain, under-utilized space became a fun, reflective environment for people to enjoy...and they most certainly did enjoy it! Countless special events and impromptu gatherings have already taken place in Fellowship Park...and things are about to get even bigger!
We're currently gearing up for the next phase of the park, and just as Phase 1 transformed our grounds into a place that families could enjoy together, the next step will transform our city, and countless lives along with it.
Fellowship Park will soon encompass over 100,000 square feet of land. It will include the only Splash Pad in Cape Coral (complete with dancing water shows!), sports fields, four half-court basketball courts, a jogging track, numerous play areas for children, shaded pavilions (which you'll be able to rent for special occasions!), and a full-service café. The church will soon become the place our city and the many families within it will turn to in order to celebrate and enjoy life to the fullest while experience the fullness of God!
What began as a vision will soon become a reality. Fellowship Park is set to be a must-visit attraction in the city of Cape Coral, a highly sought-after spot for major events, and a perfect place to build wonderful memories. Families throughout the city of Cape Coral will be able to experience God's fullness together all week long...in a space built by families, for families.
