Small park that was clean and had adequate parking for size. Children s playground with equipment in good condition. I visited to "scope" pit a beach area and my determination was that I'd go there in a pinch, but prefer a more "beachy" setting. It was an excellent spot for viewing the sunset. $2.00 park fee (exact cash or credit/debit... More

Whenever we visit my father-in-law, we usually head to Tarpon Springs for some beach time. During our most recent "tour of Florida" trip, we didn't have enough time to spend an entire day at Tarpon Springs, much less swim in the Gulf of Mexico. We couldn't go to Florida without at least seeing the Gulf, so we headed over to... More

Very small park. Nice place for a picnic but not for a 'beach' day. Large covered pavilion that can be rented for a group picnic - several (7-8) picnic tables and a large charcoal grill pit. Very small roped-off shallow swim area - okay for small children but not at all for adults. Cement wall drop-off (maybe 3 feet high)... More

The beach sand is dirty, smelly, and I would not swim in the water. It was nasty. Spend the extra time and drive to Clearwater Beach.

My family and I recently moved to New Port Richey from out of state. With four small children, we were quick to look for a nice, close, family friendly beach. This, being the closest to us is just "good" but that's all. Pro's: -Not crowded (Saturday at 7:00PM in summer) -Clean, clear water (though full of dead grass) -Kid friendly... More

We were looking for a beach to visit in New Port Richey while we were on vacation nearby. We found Robert K. Rees Memorial Park nearby. If you are not from the area (we are from Chicago), it is very difficult to find this park. From Route 19, you have to turn down a side street, and look for a... More

This is a nice small State Park. If you prefer being in the outdoors alone though, be sure to come early. People start showing up around 9am, and the parking area fills up quickly. The pay station has been upgraded to accept debit/credit cards.

Even with the wind and cooler temps it was a nice place. Just be prepared, you can't get away from screaming kids as the playground is right in the middle. Beach was nice, plenty of room, picnic tables and a small concession stand. Bathrooms too. There is a $2 parking fee, which was waived the day I was there. Also... More

We have been using this park for years and it is nice and close and not usually crowded. We have swam with the dolphins and enjoyed the toys, it is always clean and well looked after. We enjoy having picnic or just watching the water.
