One of the best things about coming to st Pete by boat is that you have the city marina , the park the ships store , fuel and walk thru the park into all those restaurants and even have outdoor plays in season.

It was a Russian emigre who laid the rails and brought his rolling stock into a sand-street fishing hamlet in the 1880s. Pyotr Demenivitch won a legendary coin-flip with the owner of the land, and thus got to name the crossroads after his somewhat grander hometown -- St. Petersburg.

The park has a boat launch, marina and a playground. My favorite part about this park is the tribute statue to fallen officers. I appreciate the city of St. Pete for dedicating such a beautiful spot to the fallen officers. They will always be remembered, never forgotten.

I attended a production of Hair a few years ago and it was wonderful to see it outside. It brought back a good vibration of past outdoor events. May need bug spray...

We walked through here during our own walking tour of downtown St. Pete. Nice park along the water next to marina and small plan airport. Plenty of space for kids & dogs to run around. We thought Vinoy Park was a little nicer but this was still nice to walk through, have a picnic, etc.

My hubs and I meet here for lunch and sit and watch the water. We bring a salad or sushi from Publix and enjoy the St Pete weather. Love this place.

Shakespeare in the Park is performed here and several other events. It is located at the end of 1st Street S. This is where The St Petersburg Yacht Club sailing team is located. Place for kids to swing and slide.

I have seen plays and concerts in this park. It is very intimate and quaint. Bring your own chairs or blanket and enjoy the play or concert.

I've been going to this park since I was a child and now I can bring my own kids. It's a small park on the waterfront, but still has ample space for the kids to run and play. The playground has been updated to new equipment since I was a kid and it was pretty clean. You can still watch... More

Demens Landing Park is where the homeless in downtown St. Petersburg hang out at dusk and after dark to get their shut-eye. There's even a truck that comes along every evening to provide the homeless with free coffee, donuts, and sandwiches. If you don't believe me, just watch the documentary "Easy Street," which profiles the huge homeless population in downtown... More
