This is my family's favorite park,it has a huge dog park and multiple playgrounds. DO NOT let your dogs or kids play near the water we have seen multiple alligators and they swim right up to us!

This park doesnt charge a fee to get it, it is a huge part to walk around, play soccer, run and have fun. Very family friendly location in the heart of Tampa

for a park in the middle of town. There is a long walking path, that goes around a small pond at the north end of the park. There are also several picnic areas and two dog parks, so it's a great local find.

Great place to relax, exercise or take the kids and unwind. Playgrounds and Paths, fishing. A nice wooded shaded area to walk as well as open fields for football and soccer.

Nice trail to run or walk on....usually quiet. Check for events at the stadium parking can get crazy...if something is going on. There are usually homeless people in the woods around the lake but they have always been harmless they feed the stray cats.
