And when I say cool, I mean it has lots of shade and keeps you cooler than normal. Lots of dogs seem to enjoy it too. It was also well maintained and there was lots of parking near by.

Williams Park is shady and green, a nice respite from the city surroundings. It’s a great place for special events, too.

If you don't mind homeless people smoking spice you might not mind this park. It could offer a little break from the downtown hustle and bustle. But personally I would not set foot in this place. I've been past this place more times than I...More

This city park at the center of the original St Petersburg has been rescued and is ready to receive visitors for a mini stroll or lunch picnic. The bandshell is a gem. It blends into the landscape with natural woods and stones. Many churches surround...More

Between the mobs of homeless people here and the questionable sobriety of the 59 bus driver, I generally avoid this park and find alternate, alternate transportation when attending festivities in the downtown area. A blight that the City chooses to ignore.

Yes, they allow pets on leash, as it says on their information board in the park. You can also inquire by calling St. Pete Store and Visitor Center at (727)-388-0686. Enjoy your visit!
