“Was once a beautiful park”
Review of A.L. Anderson Park

Reviewed June 6, 2013

The reason I now rate this park as poor. I remember when Anderson Park had a staff to maintain it. The restrooms were always clean and OPEN. The Park manager lived in the park. And now, no staff work there. They have a "floating" crew to maintain this once beautiful park.
Whenever there are budget cuts, Parks and Recreation are always the first to suffer. This park is a perfect example of that.

This is a huge park with marvelous nature trails. We loved the the fact that is pet friendly and you get to fish, run, hike, walk, picnic or just relax on the beauty of ita views. Anazing view from the lake and the breeze is so pure you feel like flying.

Anderson Park is stunning. When first turning off from US 19, it is hard to believe that something so beautiful awaits. Drive further back and you will be greeted by picnic tables nestled in a cove by the lake. Plus, there is a county recycling unit, so you can recycle while you are there! :)

I have visited this park before, but I saw it today with new eyes. That is because I saw it in its entirety. I used to come in and go straight at the stop sign. Today I turned right...took the road less traveled, if you will. I had no idea how big the park was or how many beautiful views you could have access to of Lake Tarpon. If you fish, there are many points of access to the water. If you boat, there is a boat launch. If you hike, there is a variety of paths and some nice terrain not necessarily abundant in this section of Florida. If you have children, there is a large play area. And as always, if you enjoy the sun, you will never be disappointed...and plenty of natural shade for a reprieve. Another benefit, there is not an entrance or parking fee, so those on a budget can play and relax in peace! Don't miss this one...not one inch of it...you will not be disappointed!
