  • So beautiful and very large boardwalks. Totally free! It has everything and good for bird watching. Too bad it started raining.

  • One of my favorite local nature parks!! Every visit I always see various animals without fail! The maintenance staff keep it clean and manicured, and are happy to answer questions you have about the park. The parking lots are clearly numbered so you can easily find your way back to the correct lot. Plenty of picnic areas to have lunch, or rent to have a party. There is a playground for the kids, and even a fully fenced in dog park!
  • It was incredible to see alligators without having to pay for a tour! Tarpon Lake is beautiful. If you have friends from out of town visiting, this is where you want to take them. The only thing I did not like was that dogs were not allowed on *most* of the boardwalks. Children are more disruptive to wildlife than dogs. This park is free to visit, free parking, a few playgrounds, restrooms, and many shelters to have picnics or parties. There's also a fairly large dog park, but I don't trust other people's dogs off leash. I truly did enjoy my visit here and will visit again.
  • We attended the 15TH ANNUAL "CRUISIN' THE PARK" CHARITY CAR SHOW AND COMMUNITY FESTIVAL at John Chestnut Park, put on by the Kiwanis. First it’s a beautiful wooded park with a nice lake front boardwalk. There are lots of shelters and a great dog park. But today was special. One of the best car shows I’ve been to in awhile. Lots of great cars and the best part is it was all in the shade. Definitely we will make this an annual event.
  • We absolutely love this park. We go to this park to walk one or two times a week. We walk anywhere from 2 to 4 miles each time and the trails are fantastic. We see everything from all kinds of birds, owls, squirrels, gators, otters, deer, turtles and more. This park is clean, never crowded, has a boat launch, a great dog park and many pavilions. Thank you Pinellas County for this gem that we enjoy so much.
  • This park has something for everyone! Photographers will love the wildlife; deer, squirrels, turtles, gators, many birds, and more! There are boardwalk trails and more hiking type trails. There is a boat ramp, many picnic areas including shelters, many restrooms with soap and paper towels! There is only a price to park a boat trailer. Families will find playgrounds, athletes will find soccer fields and many places to run. My favorite part of this park is the deer. I always see them when I come.
