LEASING FACILITIES AT THE LINDBERGH BAY FAMILY PARK

THE LINDBERGH BAY FAMILY PARK IS BEING REPAIRED!

The Lindbergh Bay Park, located on St. Thomas adjacent to the Cyril E. King Airport, was built by the Port Authority in 1999. The park provides a relaxing location for families to spend quality, outdoor time together. Amenities at the park include the water playground, a swing set, a children's play area with a padded surface, a volleyball/tennis court, an exercise system, a domino table, picnic tables, a shed and gazebo, benches and restrooms.  In 2000, a water playground was added to the park. A series of colorful water systems with a safe, padded surface is an ideal alternative to the beach to pass away the hot Caribbean days with family and friends.  


The Lindbergh Bay Park and Water Playground were damaged in the storms that struck the US Virgin Islands during September 2017.  The park has been closed since 9/6/2017 and will be closed until repairs are completed.
