An outdoor entertainment venue built with recycled shipping containers is coming to the master-planned Lake Nona community in Orlando.

Tavistock Development Co. plans to open the 30,000-square-foot venue, called Boxi Park, in December with a mix of bars and restaurants, volleyball courts, a stage for live entertainment, a playground and a fenced dog park.

Boxi Park will have a dozen shipping containers in one- and two-story configurations, where a changing roster of restaurants will operate. The outdoor entertainment venue also will have two full-service bars and a beer garden.

Tavistock owns a group of restaurants and will leverage its expertise in the dining-out market to curate food and beverage options at Boxi Park, which will be open to the public.

Boxi Park is an example of “sustainable design” and the “evolving … concept of food halls,” Charles B. Lewis, senior managing director of Tavistock Group, the parent company of Tavistock Development Co., said in a prepared statement.

Boxi Park will be part of Lake Nona Town Center, the 100-acre commercial hub of Lake Nona. – Mike Seemuth
