Beautiful park. We only got to stay an hour before storms rolled in. The gulf was about bathtub warm, but for mid July its to be expected. The park is beautiful. There are changing rooms/bathrooms also rinse off stations.

Not located in a tourist area, Fred Howard Park is off the beaten path. If you want to relax without a crowd this would be a good beach to visit.

Always a nice place close by for me to enjoy the beach. They always have something going on during game the weekend. Small beach but very relaxing spot with a food/ smoothie & drink truck to satisfy your needs. Bring cash.

This beach has wonderful sunsets and is not busy. We loved watching the crabs on the beach. My boys thought the crabs were the best part of the hole trip. Beautiful!

Plenty of parking. $5 to park for entire day. It is a parking meter that takes cash and cc. Bathrooms are clean. Lots of grouping of palm trees to sit under to give shade.

We were visiting Tarpon Springs and wanted to catch a sunset. We made it just in time to see it. We didn't stay too long, but it was a pretty view--we weren't disappointed! Not a huge beach but it looked like it would be fun during the daytime.

I hate to give this a great review, because I like the fact that not too many people come to this beach. That being said, I have nothing but wonderful things to say. The beaches are kept clean and well groomed, you can float in the water for hours and not be knocked over by waves, because of the outlying... More
