While painfully crowded on event weekends, it is a wonderful place to take our small children and dogs. From November to March there are sometimes manatees in the bayou to see. Not much parking, so we walk from the house.

Visited the park hoping to see some manatees but the water is warming so they are no longer congregating at the winter warm water springs. Still a lovely park.

Great viewing for the Tarpon boat parade. Boats circled the bayou and can come close up the the sidewalk. Can hold big crowds and the houses that surround the park are gorgeous. Short nice walk from Old historic downtown Tarpon.

Walked along Bayou to park to sit and watch sunset over the water. Very busy public boat ramp but need permit from Tarpon Springs Government Good for families museum and shaded areas under the trees. Good place for a picnic

I had the chance to visit this park and walk along the edge of the water just the other day and found it very peaceful. Still water, aging boat docks, palm trees, and dog walkers make this park serene and welcoming. Careful not to fall...More

This is a small park with lots of beauty. Most people walk and jog around. I took my son here to fish from the seawall. We caught ladyfish, redfish, and he caught his first flounder!

We first visited here on a Sunday afternoon looking for manatees. We saw several but the real joy was the park. There are stone walls and walkways surrounding the water and there were numerous families fishing and picnicking. There is plenty of shade beneath giant...More

The park is kept very clean and is a beautiful walk. There are some really cool trees with low lying and gnarly branches, a pretty mermaid statue, lots of benches and nice areas to picnic. They also have a playground that my toddler really liked,...More

it is a nice kayak ride in the Bayou, but the hotel next to it is a dump. looks nice on the outside but oh my, inside is disgusting. There's hotels on hwy 19 that are decent.
