Vinoy Park - St Petersburg FL
An edge of beauty and relaxation in downtown St Pete
Located on an edge of Tampa Bay, with a perfect view of St Pete Pier, this is a very peaceful place just to relax.
Walk east along 5th Avenue NE from the Vinoy Marina. The park is right at the elbow of where it meets up again with Bay Shore Drive NE that runs parallel to the Bay.
You'll find everything from serious runners to roller-bladers to children riding bikes with training wheels.
There are several benches overlooking both the Vinoy Marina and Tampa Bay. You'll see readers with a great book, artists with easels, and couples just wanting a quiet, romantic setting.
The north part of the park features a huge grassy area that runs all the way to the North Shore Park playground. It is also the venue for annual celebrations like the Fourth of July party, waterfront jazz concerts, The Starfest in May, The Taste of Pinellas in June, and The Ribfest in November.
Vinoy Park is beautiful, but it does NOT have any restroom facilities, only a water fountain. You'll have to walk a half-mile north to North Shore Pool for public restrooms.
