Great viewing for the Tarpon boat parade. Boats circled the bayou and can come close up the the sidewalk. Can hold big crowds and the houses that surround the park are gorgeous. Short nice walk from Old historic downtown Tarpon.

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!

We walked over the the Sponge Dock to escape the crowds and were rewarded with a quiet spot to sit in the water with manatee visible and gorgeous homes. Worth a look.

Walking and view were great. Cool day but the sunshine was lovely. Saw 2 small sting rays and a brief manatees sighting. Worth the trip off the beaten path.

it is a nice kayak ride in the Bayou, but the hotel next to it is a dump. looks nice on the outside but oh my, inside is disgusting. There's hotels on hwy 19 that are decent.
