From Chamber of Commerce and Pinellas Ave, go west, young person, for two blocks along West Tarpon Avenue. Craig Park has a grand staircase descending to the bowl-shape basin containing the bay. The park also houses Heritage Museum and War Memorial, as well as green space for picnics and relaxation under towering palms or gracious Live Oaks (quercus virginiana). In early June, more manatees lazed in the water than humans in the park. For those with limited travel budgets—like me—Craig Park is a must-see Tarpon Springs site. There’s a bonus that costs nothing: Walk along Spring Boulevard to admire restored magnificent mansions, depicted in the accompanying photos. I felt as though I was on the HGTV set for ‘Rehab Addict’ or ‘Bargain Mansions.’

There is a side walk that goes around the water for part of the park During manatee season you can see them coming to the surface for air. Tables and benches are also in the park. A good place for manatee watching.

What a lovely walk we took along the bayou taking in the beautiful nature around us. About 6 manatees were in the spring, and they were awesome to view! If you don’t have a lot of time to explore a large park, this is a great place to go.

We really enjoyed watching the Manatee in late January. There were many gathered at the point where the channel ends. There are several picnic spots. We ate lunch at one and watched them. Watch out for the squirrels. We also enjoyed a walk around the park. Please note that there is limited parking.
