Lake Seminole Park – Playground, Boat Launch, Trails, Wildlife – 250+ acres

Published on 07/25/23:

Who knows Lake Seminole Park? First, hope everyone’s week is off to a great start. If you follow Loving St Pete ‘stories’ you saw mine kicked off by joining local charter captain @kylewallacegonefishin. Epic day of snook, seatrout, and more with Kyle. (I’ll post about this hard working St Pete native soon)
Alright, so during our early ‘adventures’ (‘21), a number of followers suggested we visit Lake Seminole Park. We quickly saw why! Now to refresh memories on this beautiful park as I continue LovingStPete’s local nature park series.

Lake Seminole Park is Sprawling – 250 Acres

Lake Seminole Park isn’t your average neighborhood green space. This county park is sprawling, with 250+ acres of wildlife, foliage, trails, and a nice playground. While large, this park isn’t as expansive as ie Weedon (prior post, 3K+ acres). You could potentially explore it in an afternoon if feeling energetic…or you’re a part of Sarah’s Walking Club. I highly recommend joining Sarah’s group if you enjoy exploring, while getting in your steps. Fun way to do it with likeminded friends.

Lake Seminole Park:

🌳 4.7/5 stars with 3K+ Google Reviews

Great spot for an outdoor gathering, especially considering the number of pavilions and views! As a bonus, the playgrounds offer plenty of equipment to keep kids entertained while parents watch from shaded areas.

Trails at the park

There’s a 2 mile paved trail for jogging, hiking, bicycling, roller-blading, or opt for the 1-mile cut-off for a shorter route. We also found unpaved trails for extra adventures.
Several of you specifically called out the ‘hill’ at the park. Not sure we really determined the hill’s origins in my original post. Anyone know?
Watch for raccoons, alligators, hawks, eagles, turtles & more. 🦅
