About Lake Tarpon: We are blessed to have Lake Tarpon located in Northern Pinellas County. This large popular freshwater lake is 5 miles long and one mile wide and is 8 to 12 feet deep on average so it can handle powerboats, jet skis as well as canoes and kayaks.   

About Lake Seminole: This a large freshwater lake is found in the center of Pinellas County - close to the cities of Largo, Seminole and Pinellas Park.
Lake Seminole was actually created in the 1940s and has been used extensively since then for boating, skiing and fishing.

All of these parks sound like great places to spend an afternoon picnicking or out on the boat having fun.  We really enjoy reading your posts about the Tampa area.

Cyndee, funny thing about this post - I never think of FL and lakes - I think gulf and ocean - what a great post to bring this to the attention of buyers - you are the expert
Posted by Thesa Chambers, Principal Broker - Licensed in Oregon (Fred Real Estate Group) over 11 years ago
Thesa - thank you - actually we have lots of Freshwater lakes and some beautiful estates on many of them - especially in the Land o Lakes, Lutz and Odessa area North east of Tarpon Springs. It is funny how many things we take for granted - I'm still amazed at all you've taught me about La Pine Oregon and the area.

Cyndee, I just got a flashback from when I lived in Palm Harbor for a year in 1990 (near the intersection of Tampa Rd. & McMullen Booth Rd.).  The area has changed quite a bit since then but I loved going to John Chestnut Sr. Park & A.L. Anderson Park.

Leanne, thanks for stopping by - the preserved Greenspace via parks is one of my favorite things about Pinellas County - especially since we are basically "built out" - hope to see you back soon.

When I lived in Pinellas, I think they were just getting the Pinellas Trail started.  Also, once in a while I'd enjoy my lunch at the boat ramp area on the Belleair Beach Causeway and most times I'd get lucky and see dolphins nearby.  Do you still see dolphins in Clearwater Harbor?
Posted by S. Leanne Paynter ☼ Broward County, FL, Davie, Plantation, Cooper City & Weston Specialist (United Realty Group, Inc.) over 11 years ago

Leanne - did you see my post, In Belleair Beach, Florida - You're over 50 and Scrapped for a Newer Model - the Belleair Causeway is UNDER CONSTRUCTION big time until 2010 (YIKES) - Yes we do see Dolphins in the intercoastal and along the beach - they're my favorite too. 

Here's a shot of the causeway I took yesterday (I have a new listing right here)

Now that you mention it, I think I did see your post but never got around to commenting on it (I was distracted by a phone call and had to head out).  Three years of construction?!?!  Sheesh... I wouldn't want to live near there during that time.  I can vividly recall that same image in your photo (minus the construction work).  There was (is?) a shopping center to the left a little before getting on the causeway where I'd get delicious ice cream shakes.  I think the place was called Larry's or something like that.

Did someone say ICE CREAM SHOP - Hot summer days and cool ice cream parlor - LETS GO!!!!!!!
