Great park close to the Dali and Mahaffey

If you're out and about and you need a diversion, then this is a great park - tucked out of the way from the main streets and right on the Bay.

I'd guess many travelers don't comment on Demens Landing Park as it can be overlooked. Located on the Bay, in the heart of downtown St Pete, it's a quiet place close to Dali. There's a small walking bridge and it's best viewed at night for a romantic walk from the restaurants.

A free public waterfront park with a wonderful playground for the kids and plenty of grassy space with picnic tables spread out nearby. There are shade trees and park bench's to rest upon intermittently along the miles of waterfront trail. Also, bring your binoculars, so much wildlife to observe in the bay. This very scenic park is enjoyed by all,... More

Lovely park located on Tampa Bay in downtown St Pete. Each year, American Stage Theater presents a great show- usually a family friendly musical in the park- Bring a picnic (although food is available to purchase if you do not want to pack a basket). A great evening!

This is a nice park but there is no parking anywhere but a few (and I do mean a few) spots all the way at the end of the park. The rest of the place seems designed to cater to the marina as most of the parking and facilities seem to be for marina guests. Totally nice park. Just not... More

Nice park along the water mostly an area to walk around and enjoy the views, the marinas and the people of Tampa. On Saturday mornings nearby is a wonderful farmers' and other vendors market.

We stumbled across this park while strolling along the beach walk. We saw a outdoor play in the evening. Named "The heights". What an evening the quality of the play and the set were amazing. This is a quality production. Bring a blanket or lawn chairs and sit under the starts for a comical musical you will always remember. If... More

It always amazes me when we go here to play. You know you are down town, but you forget when you are here. you cannot hear the city behind you, and you get lost just looking around while the kids play at the playground. watch the boats come and go, maybe throw in a fishing line. Just relax!

I actually met friends at the St. Petersburg Yacht Club which isn't one of the options listed above. However, Demens Park is a beautiful location.

Quite park. Plenty of FREE parking. Unlike most of Florida. We parked here on MLK parade day with the help of their police directing traffic. Would return next time we are in St. Petersburg. Decent walk to the downtown area, and not too far from the Dali Museum.
