A lovely little park by the water, with shade trees and benches. It's a serene place where you don't feel as if you're in a city at all.

Nice shady place with benches. There is a memorial with pioneer names. Some names are recognizable related to streets and places in St. Petersburg area. I wouldn't go out of my way to visit but if in the neighborhood then stop by.

This is a lovely, quiet place to sit and enjoy either the water views or the magnificent banyan in the cener of the park. Even though it had, on our visit, folks wandering through, one could still enjoy the quiet.

This is a small well kept park overlooking the marina. One of a number of parks in St Petersburg that are okay just to sit and watch the world go by. Seemed safe but be aware of homeless groups

The park was near our hotel and provided a beautiful place to wander and relax. There are a number of nearby places to eat and the Saturday market was also close.
