Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Visited Tarpon Springs for the day and really enjoyed Craig Park. Beautiful bayou setting, huge Live Oak surrounded by historical houses. We quite enjoyed the Heritage Museum here as well. Just a beautiful place and so different from the touristy dock area.

Around the Spring Bayou in Tarpon Springs is a town park that should be a model of what a park should be. Craig Park provides residences with a scenic location to relax, walk or exercise with many diverse activity potentials. A center piece of the park is the Tarpon Springs Heritage Museum. The museum has exhibits of the culture and history of Tarpon Springs and serves regular events for dance and voice training. The park hosts many events that draw large crowds, the largest being the annual Greek Orthodox Epiphany and cross-diving ceremony. Craig Park offers a boat ramp, picnic area with tables and benches, toilet facilities, playground, illuminated tennis courts, shuffle board and recreation center. Boating is seasonally permitted in the Spring Bayou but restricted in Winter and early Spring when the Manatees are in for the winter. There are several parking areas but on weekends I recommend avoiding the lot by the boat ramp as it is the approach to the boat ramp and primary parking for boat trailers.

The Recreation Center is open during various programs and events. The park also features a band shell for concerts with movies shown quarterly. You can walk around the bayou on a paved walkway or on any of numerous walking paths where you can fish along the shore or watch the Manatee in Winter and early Spring. Tables and benches are located throughout the park area where you can sit and relax or have lunch with a backdrop of Live Oaks with Spanish Moss flowing gracefully from their branches making for a picturesque scene with the Bayou in the backdrop. Dogs are permitted with cleanup bags and trash cans conveniently located along the walkway to pick up after your pet if you forgot to bring your own. The park is well maintained and clean. The park is safe as the Tarpon Springs Police patrol regularly. Craig Park is a premier park that is a great place to go and get out of the house to enjoy the sights and sounds of nature.

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!

This is a beautiful small park right on Spring Bayou in downtown Tarpon Springs. Go for a stroll, have a picnic, walk your dog and enjoy the views of the water, boats and historic homes on the shoreline. There is a small recreation center and tennis courts too. Parking is free but can be full on very busy days. They also have craft fairs and different events here on some weekends throughout the year. As a photographer, I love to explore here. It is such a peaceful and lovely location to just unwind.

Nice place to walk. In the winter and early spring there often are Manatees in the Spring Branch that can be viewed from the park's walkways. We saw four during our March visit.

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.

You never know what you will see, some days it’s manatees, dolphins and the squirrels are everywhere. They do events like the arts festival in March. The park is good to walk or run, they have a playground tennis courts and fishing. It’s also nice to walk and see the beautiful historic homes.

An Amazing place where you can launch a boat, kayak or paddle board, play tennis, bike or just enjoy a gorgeous view of the waterfront bayou featuring gnarly Oak Trees with spanish moss and even a visiting manatee or dolphin at times. Sunsets are great there if you don't make it to the beach in time and benches are available on the west end waterway Just a lovely place to spend some time day or night wondering at the beauty and charm of this little coastal town of Tarpon Springs, Florida.

Nice park to take a walk around. Beautiful old trees, a neat mermaid sculpture. Nice place to have a picnic. Good place to get away from the crowds and enjoy scenery.
