Tarpon Springs Florida | Boaters and Dogs wild about Anderson Park

Tarpon Springs, Florida is home to two of Pinellas Counties Public Parks:

A L Anderson Park in Tarpon Springs Florida

Two fabulous parks with two different environments - many things to do.   A. L. Anderson Park is almost 130 acres of green space in Northern Pinellas County and has a distinctive hilly terrain and long nature trail and boardwalk along Lake Tarpon and Salmon Bay. It has a playground for kids and a paw ground for dogs. It has large areas of ample picnic tables. This park officially opened in 1982 and is named after a former commissioner who was a fisherman and also won several conservation awards.  

 Today I want share some of my favorite things about A L Anderson Park in Tarpon Springs are:

  • The public boat ramps for easy access to freshwater boating, jet skiing and more - the large parking lot is appreciated on busy holidays and weekends;
  • It has an elaborate Paw Playground for man's best friend - the dog complete with fire hydrants, water and more;
  • Playground for kids as well that overlooks the lake and hilly terrain.
  • It has several shaded picnic shelters -  Bar-B-Ques, Family Picnics and Birthday Parties are a few of the uses that come to mind; One sits overlooking Lake Tarpon.
  • Public restroom facilities are kept neat in clean in my experience;

Cyndee I am not a dog or a boater but these parks in Tarpon Springs look like a fun place to go.

I am a dog lover...I'll bet my doggie and I would enjoy ourselves here!

Great info, as always!

Ashley - I agree - my dog is not behaved enough to play there :-) and I'm hoping Susie will take me boating there but it's a beautiful place for picnics and more.

Hope all is going well for you!! Hope to see you visit again soooooooon!

Cyndee - you rock on providing great information - I love the idea of a paw park - this sounds like my kind of place too... have a great week :)
Posted by Thesa Chambers, Principal Broker - Licensed in Oregon (Fred Real Estate Group) over 11 years ago
Thesa - thank you and I appreciate your support. Can't believe it's Friday already - where does all the time go. We have so many paw parks you wouldn't believe how popular they are. A local hotel the Belleview Biltmore even had a "Yappy Hour" last week for the dogs and their owners "-)

Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting - it is a great alternative for the beaches.

We need to make a point to get out on this water and to these parks with the boys - we're so blessed to have such great parks in this area.

I used to live in Tarpon Springs about 5 years ago. I brought my husband and my children back down there 2 years ago to visit my mom and we revisited Howard Park. Its just as beautiful as when I moved away, and the scenery is breath taking. I want to move back down that way again because you cant find that kind of beauty and warmth up here in the Northern parts of New Jersey. I miss the white sandy beaches, the warm sea breeze, and the festivities that go on in the surrounding towns like St.Pete. Tarpon Springs and other surrounding areas have very friendly people, they have grest entertainment for all ages, and its not that exspensive. Im moving back someday! Hopefully sooner than later I can convince my husband that we can leave this dreadful and over taxed state and move to Florida where its cheaper and a lot nicer!

Having lived in Tarpon Springs for years, I have to agree that Anderson Park is a wonderful place! If you have not been there, it is a must!!!!
