Open waterfront park right on the bay! The park a wonderful view across Tampa Bay, the old St. Pier area and the sailboat yacht basin as well as downtown St. Pete. There are a lot of events at this park so it is always a happening place, but frankly it is much more enjoyable to visit on a non-event weekend... More

was here for the Blues Fest, and what a great place. Beautiful bay front views, huge dog park, lots of trees for shade. Parking can be a challenge.

We loved being so close to Vinoy Park on our visit to St. Petersburg. There were people walking, jogging, biking, relaxing on the grass, and it was so nice to take in the beautiful water views. There are lots of boats nearby, too, and it was fun to feel the nautical vibe as well. What a beautiful public park.

Lots of beautiful cars, boats and motorcycles and also cool vendors. Good place to bring the kids and enjoy the weather with a nice view next to the water

The fact that Vinoy Park exists is testament to the vision of St. Pete's founders and continuing custodians. What a beautiful place for a walk, a bike ride, or for long hours with a good book on a shaded bench. Simply lovely beyond compare.

Was here for a music festival and really enjoyed the area. Reminded me a lot of Bayfront in Miami. A good size so that you never felt cramped with all the people, well maintained.

Spent some time walking and jogging through here while staying at the Vinoy. What a great park with tons of trails right on the bay. We were really impressed with it, and enjoyed spending time there. Great views, safe, open, and refreshing. Very windy on our runs, but it kept us cooled off!

Great opening parking on the water. There was an amazing breeze this time, but I was here on really hot days also. There is some shade, but if you are coming for an event, bring water. Great if you want to go far a nice walk also. Great area.

I used to go to Vinoy Park every day during the week to watch the sunrise before work. What a wonderful way to start the day. There are numerous benches to sit or walkways to walk or ride bike or skateboard. Very pet friendly. My only concern is many of the weekend events overshadow the daily park goers by blocking...
