Experience Beautiful Views of Nature at Tampa Parks

Enjoy the Outdoors at the Best Parks in Tampa

Whether you want to take a stroll to enjoy nature or explore more of the city, finding the best parks should be a priority. We've rounded up a few great parks near our Tampa apartments, so you can enjoy the diversity that the city offers. Nearby parks include:

Ballast Point Park

At Ballast Point Park, you will find a boat ramp and a 600-foot pier. All you need is a saltwater fishing license to enjoy fishing 24/7 for free from the pier. You will find picnic tables scattered throughout the park for a relaxing picnic meal. Covered shelters or the gazebo can be rented, making them ideal for special events. Other features include the Fitness and Wellness Center and restaurant. 

Lettuce Lake Conservation Park 

Lettuce Lake Conservation Park may take a few more minutes for you to reach. Still, it offers a variety of activities to keep you busy all day. Surely the short drive will be worth it. It's a great place to get close to local wildlife when renting a canoe or kayak. An observation tower on the boardwalk provides scenic views of the river. You'll also find a paved exercise trail, wooded picnic areas, and educational tours. 

Al Lopez Park 

Al Lopez Park also offers a diverse array of activities for everyone. There is a paved trail for walking, biking, and skating. The trail also includes VitaCourse exercise stations. In addition, there is a tranquil nature trail around the lake. Enjoy the picnic shelters after a day of fishing off the dock. If you have furry friends, they will love the leash-free dog park and dog water fountains. 

Along with the best parks in the area, our Tampa apartments are minutes from beautiful golf courses. Contact us to learn more about the exciting neighborhood near our apartments in Tampa, FL.
