Another hidden treasure here in the Tampa Bay area! This park is a true jewel, and I’m so happy that we were made aware of it’s existence.
This park is amazing! It’s not crowded at all, and it’s so much closer than trekking to Clearwater or Fort de Soto when you want a quick beach fix. Not only is there the beach that has the view of the Howard Frankland bridge, but there’s also a 0.90-mile asphalt trail for biking or rollerblading (or walking) and 0.44 miles of nature trails for discovering all sorts of neat things, like dunes and wildflowers.
Amenities here at Cypress Point Park include ample parking, ADA accessibility, bicycle racks, benches, boardwalk, canoe launch and picnic pavilions, not to mention fishing, swimming, and birdwatching! You’re also so close to the airport you can watch the planes descent to Tampa International Airport.
Yes, the scenery is absolutely breathtaking (we even saw a dolphin on our last visit!) and the nature finds are pretty neat…
… But really, this is what makes the place so wonderful:
The kids just love it
