  • This quaint small park in the center of Downtown New Port Richey is a great example of what every small city should aim for. It's not too big or complex yet offers 90% of what any local resident or vi...  more »

  • Beautiful park! Was very well kept. Had doggy bags everywhere for those with pets. The park has something for everyone. A shaded playground for children, a fountain the kids could play in, exercise equipment scattered around the park. The scenery is amazing. Looked like it even had an area for fishing and possibly a ramp. Going to check this out in more detail next time. Will definitely be back!
  • People are allowed to RACE their bicycle, skateboard, run, and use their foot scooters on a narrow sidewalk with the people that just want to walk. Very dangerous racing a 26 speed bicycle alongside elderly people and little children. Also, there is no security there. I have seen, at times, gangs roaming the park. There is drug dealing, prostitution going on there. I am also constantly being approached by the JW's. They have a stand there. On the positive, the ducks, trees, and lake w/fountain is nice. I cannot believe all the good reviews.The people must be blind to not see the issues there. I would suggest that if you want to go, go with someone to this park.
  • I love the new park design... However, the idiocy that leads us to need a sign that says "no diving" over a concrete slab that has fountains shooting up and draining immediately (NO POOL whatsoever!!) is exactly why we DON'T need that sign. Thin the herd. If you're old enough to read, and not smart enough not to drive onto concrete, you should be supervised constantly. Or try again. Thin the herd.
  • As much as I miss the old Sims park structure I do enjoy the fact that more people come to the new one. My seven year old seems to never run out of things to do or see and whines every time we have to leave. That's a good thing as it means she enjoyed herself.
  • Very nice park very family-friendly has a nice play area for the kids I don't know the water park very well kept and very clean also some very good fishing and even has a doctor you can park your boat if you want to have a great day come to the Sims Park is a great park for the family and a great day in New Port Richey
