During the school year, we drive by this park 5 days a week. After 7 years of driving by, we finally planned an outing.There is a reasonable $2.00 park fee that is on the honor system. Unfortunately there is no where to get change so I rifled through my purse and car for quarters! I had hoped to capture some... More

My family has been here several times for picnics/family days. You can rent out the covered shelters, but honestly unless you are going on a holiday you most likely don't need to. We have never paid for one but have always had one, we just get there early and call dibs. The shelters are really nice, you have the grills... More

This is a great trail to run, walk, skate or bike. There is also a canoe drop at the top of upper Tampa bay off of Hillsborough Dr.

We visited with an Audubon group. I had hoped to see numerous birds but was disappointed. There are several nice short trails. The ranger who guided us identified numerous native as well as invasive plants along the way. The nature center was informative, and the view from the second story porch beautiful. This would be a great place to take... More

Great spot for kayaking or canoeing. There are some walking trails and a nice little boardwalk from which you can view the water. There is also a nice little museum with wildlife and ecology displays. If you're looking to get away from the crowd, Upper Tampa Bay Park is a great destination!

$2.00 parking fee, but wonderful exhibits of Florida wildlife. It's a nature center. Small play park for kids too.
