In 1972, under an agreement with the District, Hillsborough County developed this site as one of its largest and most popular regional parks.

Although the park’s main attraction, a 700-acre reservoir used for canoeing, boating and fishing, is currently closed to allow water to raise naturally after a SWFWMD levee reconstruction project, Edward Medard Park still has much to offer.
