St. Petersburg Jungle Prada Site History Tour

121 reviews
The Jungle Prada Site Tour explores the last 1,000 years of Florida history at one of most important historical landmarks in Tampa Bay. Jungle Prada was the site of a Tocobaga Indian village for over 600 years, and it is generally recognized as the 1528 landing place of Panfilo de Narvaez and Alvar Nunez Cabeza de Vaca. Discover one the best-preserved American Indian mounds in all of Florida on this 75-minute guided historical walking adventure. We will escort you to the top of the private Anderson/Narvaez mound, a 900-foot-long, 25-foot-high shell midden. This family-owned property also boasts a 3-acre, Florida-friendly waterfront garden, a small museum with archaeological artifacts from the site, and dozens of free-roaming peacocks. The tour is full of fantastic story telling. It's an immersive historical and botanical experience that should not be missed. Reservations and facemasks are required. Tours are limited to a maximum of 10 people.

Very small park.Go to another park if you’d like to walk. This is pretty much a boat launch.Seminole lake is a little bit up the road , north of Bay Pines has a beautiful park for walking, picnic tables, & a playground .Like all of Florida,..the lake has alligators of course, so not for swimming. Path for walking. It’s Is much better park w/ a boat launch. there.

This park is nicely maintained and there are several places to put kayaks or canoes into the water. It has a good view of the drawbridge that leads to Walsingham and of some hotels at St. Pete Beach across the water. There's one area that really smells though near the water. I mean it was awful

I have been to many group picnics at this park, usually the favorite spots are right next to the bay. It’s nice to have a roof over the tables for shade. Breezy, lovely views. However, at certain times of the year, there are tiny gnats you can’t see, “no see-umms”, that have a big bite.

Choice of several shelters with picnic tables with great water views. Only issue is the mosquitoes during parts of the year. Good play grounds for the younger kids and shoreline to explore

We rode our bikes over to this park and it was a lovely, shady ride through the entrance, then opening up to views of the bay, picnic areas and playgrounds. Of course there is a war memorial that has a sundial and a tank, which are interesting ways to teach your kids about both science and history.
