“a haven for wildlife!”

Sawgrass Lake Park, 400 acres in size, allows people to walk through one of the largest maple swamps on the Gulf Coast of Florida. The park’s mile-long boardwalk and half-mile dirt trail provide opportunities to see birds, butterflies, plants and animals in their natural settings within the most densely populated county in Florida. Herons, egrets, ibis, wood storks, alligators and turtles can be seen along the canals and lakes. Thousands of birds migrate through the park during the fall and spring, attracting birders and eco-tourists from all over the country. Sawgrass Lake Park is mentioned by the Great Florida Birding Trail and the National Audubon Society as one of the premier birding sites in Florida. Sawgrass Lake Park is the result of a unique cooperative agreement between the Pinellas County Parks & Conservation Resource Department, the Pinellas County School District and the Southwest Florida Water Management District. Amenities: boardwalk, nature trail education center historic interest observation tower parking restroom one picnic shelter and grill - no shelter reservation available (only one shelter) telephone
