One wouldn't believe that this park is literally next to the interstate. We spent around two hours enjoying this little bit of an oasis in St. Pete. It was only about a 30 minute drive from where we were staying. It is a very quiet,...More

We stopped by here as recommended by family as a little time waster. The board walk and look out towers were well worth visiting. My 2 and half year old saw a 6 foot gator. Some babies, some older gators along with fish, turtles, birds....More

Sawgrass is one of the areas "hidden" treasures. There are many wooden boardwalks situated above the "river", swampland and areas being reclaimed by nature. Because of all the natural changes, Sawgrass is a never ending kaleidoscope of wonder. Every visit becomes a lovely memory. You...More
