I lived in Holiday last year for a brief time and my new friend took me there. I fell in love with the park. Wish i still lived there to visit more often

I moved to Pasco three years ago and have enjoyed the park with my friends. It's clean, fun and I feel well protected by law enforcement. The only caution I would give is make sure your food is in a cooler or well sealed bags. The birds have figured out how to open chip bags and will so so lol!... More

The beach at Howard Park is lovely. It's so nice for families with small children as the water is not deep and there are no big waves. They have restroom facilities and bikes, umbrellas/chairs and paddle boats to rent? Parking is $5 per car so plan on staying a few hours to get your monies worth.

They have improved the park over the past few years and it's a pleasure to visit! A little difficult to find for first timers, but well worth the effort!

Beautiful beach. Well patrolled by law enforcement. Can fish from the new causeway or the jetty. Hourly fee to park. Plenty of parking space even during season. No concession for food

Try this one $5 to park and the rest is free. Great beach and water access. You can hire deckchairs and brollies and even take a kayak ride for a few dollars. Kids loved it dolphins came right up to the beach

Great find. Was in the area for Labor Day and was looking for a place to park my chair in the sand and get a little sun. Beach was clean and park rangers and life guards were present. Lots of families visiting but it wasn't too crowded. Water was salty and warm but refreshing after sitting in the blazing sun.... More

Great views of the Gulf - especially at sunset. A good place for sun bathing and swimming with only a small admission fee.

The Park is a little hard to find, but a decent GPS will get you there. Recently modernized, the park sits right on the Gulf of Mexico and offers a nice beach with restrooms and areas for changing into your bathing suit. When I was there last year, no food service was available and the county had instituted a modest... More
