  • I consider this a hidden gem that many know about. It was my first visit and imagine my surprise at what a wonderful location this is. It's right along the water with access to the water. A wonderful path for biking, walking or just relaxing on a bench. Many folks were set up for picnics and or with kids at the park on property. Plenty of free parking here and just very peaceful. I enjoyed listening to the water crash against the wall. We even saw dolphins, so keep your eyes opened.
  • Great place to see a concert. I was there for a all day concert event. Great location next to the water. Plenty of trees to sit under to get out of the sun. Great view over looking Tampa Bay.
  • My personal get away from the city, it reminds me of Central Park but on the water. I love longboarding, catching a sunset, or playing volleyball on the beach. There are always people here that are local and friendly. A nice place to relax after work or school!
  • I like when the Park transforms to a Festival venue. Dolphins come right up to the sea wall at times.Nice for a walk or sitting in the shade. Oh..the squirrels and seagulls can get a bit bold if you decide to have a bite while you are there.
  • A great place for the whole family. We spent alot of Sunday evenings here. Its a great place to Fish, jog, walk, or just relax in the breeze. We even saw dolphins occasionally.
