Historic Round Lake Park, on the edge of downtown St Petersburg FL, is an almost forgotten corner of Old St Pete. Quiet and quaint, it is a nice place to sit and read, or just think, for locals and visitors alike.
Located at 6th Street & 6th Avenue North, it is in one of the oldest neighborhoods in the city.
The varied homes, many of them bungalow styled, are set on brick-paved roads and hexblock sidewalks.
The lake is relatively small. You can walk around it in about 8 minutes.
There are several benches facing the lake, and a brightly painted gazebo that, curiously, has no seats.
There are no restrooms in this park.
Make sure you catch a bite to eat at Angie's Front Porch Market Cafe (495 7th Ave. N., St. Petersburg, FL 33701; 727-320-4540) just west of the park, up 7th Avenue.
