Demens Landing Park - Downtown St Pete

demens landing park

Demens Landing is a beautiful park in St Petersburg, Florida








Demens Landing Park is part of the St Petersburg Waterfront Parks system. Situated between two yacht basins, this scenic park is the site for the springtime American Stage in the Park.

In 2010, the tribal rock musical HAIR was an overwhelming success. In 2011, RENT was performed, and in 2012, the controversial Rocky Horror Show was featured.

The park is located at 1st Avenue SE and Bayshore Drive, directly across the street from Pioneer Park. It is pretty easy to find because of its huge entrance bridge.

The biggest drawback, however, is the lack of parking. Please keep this in mind.

There are two huge lots (Lot B) for boat owners at the St Petersburg Marina, but only about 14 spaces in Lot A for park visitors.

Demens Landing has several covered picnic areas (no grills), clean restrooms, a nice playground for young children, and a beautiful view of Tampa Bay.
