Franz Ross Park

Franz Ross Park Playground

Franz Ross Park was built on 30.85 acres in 2001 and funded by 1998 Sales Tax, Parks and Rec Impact Fees, and the Florida Recreation Development Assistance Program Grant.

Franz Ross Park is named after Colonel Franz Ross, a WWII Army Veteran and two-term Charlotte County Commissioner. He was a staunch supporter of Charlotte County Parks, insisting that General Development Corporation donate land promised to Charlotte County for park sites. The Franz Ross Park sits on one such site.

The park is home of the Port Charlotte Bandits Pop Warner football team and the Veterans semi-professional football team. It is also home of the Franz Ross YMCA with a fitness center and indoor instructional swimming pool.
