Peaceful setting on a walkabout.

The beautiful climate of St Petersburg allows pleasant walking through this park. They claim 361 days a year of sunshine ! We were there in autumn and it was ideal.

My husband and I were married in this park on March 11, 1989. We went there on January 3rd with a good friend and renewed our vows with new and newly refurbished rings.

Great place on the beach for a sit and relaxation. Good views of the sea and a little haven of tranquillity.

For artists set up at their easels and painting, for kids swinging from the big banyan tree, for music lovers attending a jazz concert and Shakespeare fans watching a play. It's the people's place to,spend Sunday afternoon walking off a Beach Drive brunch.

Very nice park that runs along Tampa Bay and down Beach Street past the Museum of Fine Arts and to the Dali Museum. It could use a few more benches and trash receptacles.

This park is right downtown between bay and beach. By the way, beach in not on the beach! Plenty of restaurants and museums in the area.

Not a destination by any means, but a nice little shady block on the water. No real draw. Some benches and shade are nice.
