  • Park was in excellent condition awesome place to take the kids especially on a hot summer day there is watered playground with something coming out of the ground. The reason I gave it to stars is they need lighting 4 dust or Dawn and trash cans on site was overflowing Plus there's no gate to keep children inside play area which is very unsafe when there is water within 50 foot and when I say water I mean Bay of Tampa. Most of the parks around Tampa have Gates around them going to provide a little bit of security for parents slash safety for the children overall is a very great Park just needs a little more TLC some lights a little bit of security and someone to clean the property
  • Great place to take kids for the playground and perfect for fishing! The pier is fairly large and the time I was there, there was a group of dolphins swimming around. The little shop at the beginning of the pier is great for ice cream or quick snack, they also sell bait. The kids loved the playground, make sure to bring bathing suits/towels. The parking area seems to get crowded, but if you drive around you will generally find someone who is leaving. The drive to the park itself is awesome!
