This is a well maintained average park but not enough shade for Florida. They have several shelters, a dog park and children's play area. The short paths do not provide much exercise and there are no bike lanes.

This is a beautifully designed park for privacy or playing with your dog at the included dog park. Launch a boat; walk about; have a picnic under the gorgeous old live oaks. Immerse yourself in nature & be renewed.

Our Tahoe stay at the Heavenly Purple was brief but exceptional. The home is impeccably clean, elegantly furnished, has comfortable beds and a nice kitchen complete with cooking equipment. The location is the best on the hill. We took the bus to the casinos and...More

This park must be smoking hot in the summer. Hardly any shade and virtually no walking paths. Just the playground was good, but wide open with no cover. Plenty of other parks to stop at in the Tarpon area besides this one. Maybe just good...More

We moved the area 18 months ago after owning our condo for three years. We had been told of Anderson Park so we decided to visit and what we heard understated the beauty of this wonderful place on the shore of Tarpon Lake. A few...More

As others have responded, there is a nice dog park, and leashed dogs are permitted in other areas of the park as well. Owners must take responsibility for "pooper scooping".
