Ir's ridiculous to require a leash. Whoever came up with this rule is what's wrong with America today.

We have an annual pass. We ride our bikes there. There is a new run and bike path. It runs along parking lots with great views. It is a nice quiet place with several beach areas.

This park is located in the Gulf of Mexico, off Dunedin. It has a lot to offer. Playgrounds, picnic areas, plenty of beaches, mammoth parking lots, rental beach equipment, and a restaurant. It is definitely worth a visit. We are locals, and will be returning.

If you are in the Clearwater area, skip the packed beaches there...come to Honeymoon Island! It's an inexpensive way to spend the day, for ~$8 per carload. There are walking trails there, too, and several beach locations on the island. Even a dog beach!
