  • After living in the Clearwater area I finally went to this park. It was the holiday so the parking was easy in the garage at the Straz center. We walked a short distance & thought that was the end.....  more »

  • Love this park, really scenic and positive vibes that are much needed in an industrial area! At night, the fountains light up with LED lights! There are tons of inspirational/motivational quotes carved into the brick walkway. Overall, amazing place with great energy!
  • Good place to hang out with family. If you have kids they are going to love water fountains. For adults it is a relaxing place. You could walk around or use Scooters to enjoy
