The former Deer Run Golf Course, now owned and maintained by Seminole County, is intended to be redeveloped into a public recreation amenity and environmental asset. The County now intends to develop a conceptual design that affords both active and passive recreation and which is based upon accurate topographic information and the location of existing trees and fixed improvements. Improving water quality as it leaves the site and flows to Lake Jesup is of particular importance in the proposed design. The site topography lends itself to connecting on site water bodies and developing new man-made wetlands that act as filters, filter surface runoff before it leaves the site. The design solution will include boardwalks and pathways that connect the site and provide for interpretive educational opportunities.

Many factors and strategies need to be considered in order to effectively reimagine the former Deer Run golf course. Before we can consider what Deer Run can become we need to first look at the site conditions and what best practices exist for converting this site into a recreational amenity.
