Great for sunsets! We took a picnic dinner, enjoyed the view and people watching and then the sunset. It was spectacular!
There's a couple of pavilions there and a restroom along with the beach and some swings for little kids. It's a small park, with not a big lot, but there is some parking along the causeway with not too far to walk.
Green Key Road is right off Rt 19 and is very convenient!
Recommend for couples and families.

This is a small beach with picnic areas and restrooms near New Port Richey. Parking was free. It is handicapped friendly. There is a play area for the children. There is a long enough shore line to be able to go swimming in the gulf. The views are not spectacular but you are able to see Alabama from here! Nice place to go on a warm day!

My family and I recently moved to New Port Richey from out of state. With four small children, we were quick to look for a nice, close, family friendly beach. This, being the closest to us is just "good" but that's all.

Pro's:

-Not crowded (Saturday at 7:00PM in summer)
-Clean, clear water (though full of dead grass)
-Kid friendly (shallow water depth, playground)
-Picnic shelters with tables and grills
-Restrooms

Con's:

-Lot's of dead grass throughout the water
-Facilities slightly dated and rundown
-Parking fee
-Theft concerns (warning signs posted)

While we will come back, other nearby beaches in the area are more appealing to us such as Fred Howard Park. For the fee required I expected the facilities to be kept up with just a little bit better.

If you have any questions I'd be happy to answer them. I've included a number of pictures in this review.

Repeat visitor from 2014. Am in Florida for our annual Spring Training Baseball and Golf trip. It's a simple beach, with bathrooms. $2 parking fee. Not the biggest beach area, and not the greatest sand, but the beach has sand and water, so it's good enough for me. The park also has those little barbecue grills you can use. The park is difficult to find, but Green Key Rd. is located directly North of the Wing House restaurant. There's also a stand which sells drinks and hot dogs.

Whenever we visit my father-in-law, we usually head to Tarpon Springs for some beach time. During our most recent "tour of Florida" trip, we didn't have enough time to spend an entire day at Tarpon Springs, much less swim in the Gulf of Mexico. We couldn't go to Florida without at least seeing the Gulf, so we headed over to Green Key. There is a small parking fee, but outside of that, no other entry fee, so it is very affordable. The beach is small with no frills, but it's a very nice, enjoyable little spot. We didn't have swim gear with us, but we did take off our flip flops to dip our toes in the water. It was very warm and also very hot outside, so a full swim in the water would have been great! I am sure we will be back again, and when we are, we will definitely make a return trip to Green Key!

Small park that was clean and had adequate parking for size. Children s playground with equipment in good condition. I visited to "scope" pit a beach area and my determination was that I'd go there in a pinch, but prefer a more "beachy" setting. It was an excellent spot for viewing the sunset.
$2.00 park fee (exact cash or credit/debit card) accepted.

We are back in New England after wintering in New Port Richey for the first time. We spent many late afternoons watching the magnificent sunsets, the variety of birds, and dolphins frolicking close to shore. We miss it so much. Love the boardwalk. The beach is small but the sunsets are tremendous.

This park would be a little tricky to reach if travelling north on the US19. It is just passed Main Street on the left. You need to turn into Green Key Road. The park is right at the end of the road. There are spaces for about 20 cars around the turning circle, although you can also park in the unsupervised lot further up the road. The day fee for parking is a very reasonable $2. There is a small beach with an area cordoned off for swimming. There are picnic benches and barbecue stands as well. There are some children's playground toys, although these are currently being replaced. We found this to be a very tranquil spot, and no doubt the sunsets there would be spectacular. The only aspect which detracted from our visit was the graffiti scratched into the board walk. The board walk is provided to view the ecologically sensitive mangrove swamps. There are lots of names carved into the wood. At the end of the board walk there is an observation platform. Whilst we were there, there were some explicit and unpleasant daubings. This type of vandalism has been rarely seen in our travels and it seems a great shame that such a beautiful facility should be marred in this way.

This park is near my house, and I LOVE to go there and watch the sunset... Most nights folks applaud when the sun is finally down.
There is a nice playground (with unique items you don't see in most parks).
There is also a very nice boardwalk trail that I don't think most people know about... it is always very quiet along the trail/boardwalk.

We visited family in New Port Richey over the Christmas break and were looking for something fun to do with the kids. We almost didn't come to this park because other reviewers said there wasn't much there. I'm not sure exactly what they were looking for but we had an awesome time watching the many types of birds, playing in the sand, meeting some really interesting locals, wading along the shore, learning about the tides and the best part -watching the sun set over the water. There was also a wooden walkway built over the marshland that allows you to walk out and see many different bird species. It ends up at a nice gazebo overlooking another part of the shore. I love history so, I really enjoyed reading Robert K. Rees' firsthand account of the development of the key over the past several decades on the informational sign. The playground was nice and clean too. This was the best $2 I ever spent. Bring a picnic and spend the day. Lovely.
