Posner Park is a brand new shopping centre situated on the north bound side of the US 27 at the I-4 intersection. If you are travelling from Orlando/Tampa it is junction 55 of the I-4, exit and take the south bound lane signed Haines City. The park is on the left and there are traffic lights controlling the entrance. It is built on the site of an old baseball complex.

The Park covers over 350 acres and already has a good mix of stores open including JC Penney, Michaels, Target, a Dollar Tree, Belk, Payless Shoes, Pet Smart and a Million Books.

Target and Michaels are my favourites! Michaels sells all sorts of wonderful craft materials including scrapbooking, silk flowers, art materials etc. I like scrapbooking and I find the range of items they have on offer is vast from small embellishments, paper, cardstock and tools to large storages bags – some on wheels! ! They also stock card making materials, stickers, templates, etc and for occasions such as St Valentine’s Day, Easter, 4th of July, Thanksgiving and Halloween, they have big displays of extra goodies to browse through. I can easily get ‘lost’ in there for a whole morning!

In Target they have clothes, toys, household goods, sports equipment, stationery, a garden centre and a small groceries department. It’s great if you want to browse the store and just need a few food items for supper! They stock a little of everything, including fresh fruit and vegetables, the choice is not as large as a Walmart but it doesn’t take so long to walk around and it is not so congested! If you are in a hurry it is ideal.

JC Penney is a department store. The shoe department is great! They stock everything from high fashion to trainers! And they have a large, very well stocked clothes department which again caters for all tastes plus menswear, a teenagers section and young childrenswear too!

The Park is still growing and more stores are opening all the time. There is plenty of parking and if you prefer not to walk between shops (especially if it is hot) you can park outside each shop! Eventually it will have a tree lined access drive and include more restaurants and entertainment venues too. Every time we visit it is fun to see how much it has developed and if a new outlet has opened that we are interested in browsing around!
