The Very Large Highland Recreation Complex in Largo

Highland Recreation Complex in Largo – Playground and more.

Published on 02/05/21: With construction of Largo’s new ‘futuristic’ playground now complete at the Highland Recreation Complex, we had to check it out!

First, Colt and I weren’t familiar with the Highland Recreation Complex. With this in mind, we were both very surprised to see water slides, an aquatic center and a three-story indoor playground as we pulled in!? This certainly is a comprehensive facility/park, offering summer camps and more. They evidently host VPK and after school care as well. Colt was ready to sign the dotted line!

We regained focus and meandered to the new outdoor playground. Colt had a blast ‘playing in the spaceships’ and being a ‘gymnast’ on the various rope and balance areas. There’s one area for ages 2-5 and another for 5-12. Colt focused primarily on the older side, though wanted to mention there are smaller slides and equipment for younger ones!

The playground is a very unique design that seems to hit the nail on the head for the kids! If you have children or grandkids, add it to your list!

Mike Braswell is a Tampa Bay Realtor, serving St Petersburg, Clearwater, all nearby beaches and more. Mike started LovingStPete in October of 2020 after a difficult year took its toll on local businesses. After being cooped up for portions of 2020 (lockdown) Mike and his son decided to get out and explore, helping spread the good word about the local area he loves so much. Often even doing gift card giveaways to support local. LovingStPete is now followed by over 48 thousand people on social media! The majority of posts are informative on fun parks, activities, day trips, great restaurants, and in general provide a comprehensive tour of the area!

Soon after receiving his bachelors in Management Information Systems, Mike developed and then operated a vacation rental advertising business for 10+ years as CEO/Owner. The business was eventually acquired by VRBO. Mike has earned the trust of many large clients over the years. Such as NFL, Wynn Resorts, Blue Cross Blue Shield, VISA, Genuine Parts Company (NAPA Auto Parts), AT&T, and other Fortune 500 companies.

When not spending time with his beautiful wife and energetic son, Mike enjoys boating and is also an avid tennis player. An interesting fact about Mike is that he grew up on an avocado farm with over 15 varieties, some of which you can find in our local Publix/Winn Dixie as his dad still farms the same farm at 87 years old!
