Leisure Activities

In keeping with the year ‘round climate that area residents enjoy, each of the cities we cover offers an excellent recreation program with planned activities at many of its parks. Both Safety Harbor and Oldsmar have such outstanding Leisure Services programs in their many parks that “KaBOOM!” has recognized them among only 118 “Playful Cities” in the entire country. And what makes this even better is that the two cities have established a cooperative program through which residents of either city may enjoy all of the recreational services available in the other at the regular residents’ rate.
Dunedin also has an outstanding Leisure Services department and enjoys the additional advantage of being connected to Honeymoon Island and Caladesi Island State Parks. Its city parks offer diversified opportunities that recently were expanded with the addition of the new Josiah Cephas Weaver Park with a long fishing pier into St. Joseph Sound on the Intracoastal connecting into the Gulf of Mexico. The famed Clearwater Beach recently received recognition as America’s Best Beach in 2011 by coastal expert Dr. Stephen Leatherman, a distinction that Caladesi Island Beach enjoyed in 2008. Both beaches are consistently listed among the top ten in the country. For more information on Leisure Services, visit the individual city websites.
In addition to city recreational programs, residents of the area enjoy access to Pinellas County Parks, including the historic Philippe Park in Safety Harbor and the John B. Chestnut Park on beautiful Lake Tarpon. Several State Parks are also located within easy driving distance. Another nearby place to visit is Fort DeSoto State Park just north of St. Petersburg.
