Colins Park
In Memory of Colin Every
The Daytona Beach Fire Department is proud of Colin's Park at 201 University Boulevard, behind Fire Station #3. This two-acre, riverfront family park was built in memory of Colin Every, the son of a Daytona Beach firefighter / paramedic and elementary school teacher. Colin lost his life when he drowned tragically March 1994. The park has three themes - safety, recreation and recycling.

Firefighters and paramedics offer several safety programs at this park. Local schools and children's groups are invited to utilize this park not only for recreation, but also as a learning environment for both land and water safety.

Colin's Park offers a children's playground, an open area for group activities, picnic pavilions with outdoor grills, fishing dock and park benches to enjoy the beauty of Daytona's only beachside riverfront park.

Keep Daytona Beach Beautiful in conjunction with the City of Daytona Beach's Recycling Division assisted in the development and construction of Colin's Park. An environmental theme has been incorporated into the park to educate citizens about the importance of recycling and other environmental concerns. Park benches, picnic tables and playground equipment made of recycled materials were used in the park. Educational signs have been placed throughout the park highlighting what has been made from the recyclables.
