  • Very nice Park, well-kept, with nice view to the Bay and the marina. Quiet place to sit and take the cool, watching the fishermen and pelicans that approach and are environmentally friendly. Just see the bores and sailboats pass.

  • 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.
