Altamonte Springs is known for its centerpiece and civic park, Cranes Roost, a 37-acre lake and amphitheater bordered by both the Altamonte Mall, with its 180 shops and AMC theater, as well as Uptown Altamonte, a 25 acre mixed-use development. The $3 million renovation of the park was completed in time for the city’s recent signature 4th of July celebration, Red, Hot & Boom!
