Located at the southernmost tip of Pinellas County, Fort De Soto County Park is the largest park in the county’s park system with 1,136 acres made up of five interconnected islands.

Opened in 1962, the park boasts sandy beaches, historic features and a wealth of recreational opportunities.

In 2005, the park’s North Beach topped Dr. Beach’s list of top American beaches. Citing its wide sugar sand beach, great shelling and thriving natural dunes, this much-deserved honor came as no surprise to Pinellas residents.

Walkers, joggers, skaters and bike riders have made use of the unique Fred E. Marquis Pinellas Trail since the completion of its first segment in 1990.

The first 5-mile stretch ran from Taylor Park in Largo to Seminole City Park and provided a protected greenspace for trail-goers. A linear park and recreation trail now extending from St. Petersburg to Tarpon Springs, the corridor connects some of the county’s best parks, coastal areas and neighborhoods.

Parks adjacent or close to the trail include, from south to north, Trail Head Park, Azalea and Abercrombie City Park in St. Petersburg; War Veterans County Park in Bay Pines; Seminole City Park; Walsingham Park, Heritage Village, Ridgecrest and Taylor Park in Largo; Coachman Park in Clearwater; Pioneer Park, Edgewater Park and Hammock Park in Dunedin; Stansell Park and Wall Springs County Park in Palm Harbor; The Dunn Conservation Park and Craig Park in Tarpon Springs.

The Pinellas Trail is one of the most popular and successful projects ever launched.

Officially known as the Fred Marquis Pinellas Trail, the 35-mile paved path has not only become a favorite of cyclists, but of skaters, runners and walkers as well.

Like a great serpent, it snakes its way through Pinellas County while sprouting spurs that together eventually will become 100 miles or more long.

The land boom that gripped much of Florida in the 1920s largely bypassed the sleepy backwaters of Pinellas County. Instead, most Pinellas residents scraped a living from whatever bounty the land and the sea provided.

Visitors can step back to that simpler time at Heritage Village, the county’s open-air historical museum. Heritage Village is a town that never existed. It was created, starting as a bicentennial project in 1976, to give visitors the feel of a typical 1920s Florida small town.

From the pier, kayaks point toward the shell strewn shore. Rowers and paddlers pack with granola bars, insect repellent, towels and bottles of water.

There is a marked trail around the bend at Weedon Island, a preserve originally acquired in 1898 by Dr. Leslie Weedon.

Ironically the original inhabitants of these lands were the Weeden Island Culture.

The four-mile canoe trail loops gently through low, thick mangrove forest and long stretches of seagrass flats.

There are many species of birds including: rosette spoonbills, ibis, great blue herons, plus schools of mullet and a fair share of mosquitoes and no-see-ums.
