Well kept gem of a park that is adjacent to downtown New Port Richey. Shops, restaurants, ice cream, etc. Also situated alongside the Cotee River. Enjoy a relaxing cup of coffee, collect your thoughts, enjoy the peace and well kept lawns.

Movie night is great! My grand daughter loved it. Just make sure you make a vehicle for your child out of a cardboard box to enjoy your movie. They have a contest for the kids to choose the best one. The kids love it.
