John Chesnut is large county park with picnic shelters, restrooms, walking trails, and a dog park. It is heavily treed and very beautiful. Definitely worth visiting.

Wonderful place for easy hiking and enjoying Florida wildlife. The boardwalks are lovely with lots of picture-taking opportunities. Excellent picnic facilities, boating, and a dog park. This park is well maintained and has something for everyone.

Great place for family gatherings...a pick up softball game, birthday party, childrens playgroung and boardwalk that parallels Lake Tarpon and nature trails. John Chestnut Park is a great place to walk, jog, and/or bike.

Multiple walking trails inland and along lake tarpon shoreline. Encountered several species od birds throughout the walk as well as deer, squirrel, shore birds and even alligators what a treat. Great park for picnics, boating but check regulations.
