This is a very nice park on Beach Drive in downtown St Petersburg. Nice walking, trees, people watching. The large I think they are Banyan Trees are great. Across the street are all the restaurants on Beach Drive, as well as the St Petersburg MFA.

This is a lovely park, but it is also home to many homeless individuals. This area seemed rife with homeless, which wasn't bothersome to my husband and I, but rather sad to see. The park offered perhaps a safe haven for them?

There are at least four beautiful city parks near each other along the waterfront near the marina. Everything is within walking distance of one another including a number of great restaurants.

This is a great place to relax and unwind during your visit. Watch the waves, look at the boats or just enjoy an amazing view of the ocean. This would be an AMAZING picnic spot.

My husband and I were married in this park on March 11, 1989. We went there on January 3rd with a good friend and renewed our vows with new and newly refurbished rings.

The beautiful climate of St Petersburg allows pleasant walking through this park. They claim 361 days a year of sunshine ! We were there in autumn and it was ideal.
