Florida State Parks Are Good for Florida’s Economy

The Data Proves It!

The latest 2016-2017 economic impact data proves that not only do our state parks provide affordable places where we can play hard or rest easy, they also have an important impact to the economy of Florida.

  • $3 billion contributed in direct economic impact to the state’s economy
  • $205 million in sales tax revenue
  • 48,622 jobs were supported as a result of state park operations

Let’s Keep the Success Going!

Friends of Florida State Parks supports and urges you to support a $50 million appropriation for land management and infrastructure improvements in our 175 state parks.  Find your Representative and State Senator at the last link below - tell them how important state parks are to you personally and ask them to support the $50 million appropriation for land management and infrastructure improvements.

The return is worth it!
