Innovation Park is a research and development park located in Florida’s Capital City. It is located on 208 acres of scenic woods and rolling terrain with building sites available for immediate development.
For the past 25 years, Innovation Park has been the heart of Tallahassee’s technology future. The university-related research park was established as a unique location for technology industry and government scientists to work hand-in-hand with Florida A&M University and Florida State University
Innovation Park is home to a wealth of high-tech and research-based organizations that are creating the technology of tomorrow. Community members represent the university, governmental and industrial sectors. To learn more about the community please click here.
