We first visited here on a Sunday afternoon looking for manatees. We saw several but the real joy was the park. There are stone walls and walkways surrounding the water and there were numerous families fishing and picnicking. There is plenty of shade beneath giant...More

The park is kept very clean and is a beautiful walk. There are some really cool trees with low lying and gnarly branches, a pretty mermaid statue, lots of benches and nice areas to picnic. They also have a playground that my toddler really liked,...More

We walked over the the Sponge Dock to escape the crowds and were rewarded with a quiet spot to sit in the water with manatee visible and gorgeous homes. Worth a look.

Walking and view were great. Cool day but the sunshine was lovely. Saw 2 small sting rays and a brief manatees sighting. Worth the trip off the beaten path.

Great walkway around the water. Unfortunately we didn't see any manatees on this visit, although our friends have seen them there.

This is a great place to walk, picnic, fish and see the manatees. Beautifully manicured lawns and lots of space to wander. We walked here everyday from our rental and enjoyed every moment.

Craig Park is located in Tarpon Springs and is a great little park to visit for walking on a beautiful day here in Florida. Most dog owners clean up after their dogs, so that isn't too much of a problem..it's very clean and well maintained....More
