    Klapp-Phipps Park in Tallahassee Florida

    By March 1, 2023No Comments

    History of Klapp-Phipps Park

    Like much of the land surrounding Tallahassee, this park was originally farmland. The plantation was called the Ayavalla Plantation, and the main crops were cotton and corn. The park is now owned by the Northwest Florida Water Management District, but there are many prominent names among the prior owners. For example, Dwight Davis was President Coolidge’s Secretary of War, and Ellen Call, the daughter of Governor Call.

    The park is maintained and managed by the City of Tallahassee and is crisscrossed with miles of trails. There are trails for all sorts of activities, including horseback riding, bicycling, walking and hiking. Many trails are shaded for summer hikers. We have spent many hours at the Meadows Soccer Complex on Millers Landing Road with soccer and softball practices. There is also the Meridian Park ball area, off of Meridian Road, which was re-developed as a multi-use youth sports complex.
