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
🌳 Benches & swings for lake viewing
🌳 Wheelchair Accessible
🌳 Restrooms
🌳 Multiple Playgrounds (not fenced, some equipment is shaded)
🌳 13 Picnic Shelters
🌳 Ball Field
🌳 Boat Ramp
🌳 Fishing
🌳 Multipurpose Trails
🌳 Water Fountains
🌳 Pets on leash allowed
Open 7 days, 7am to sunset. County Parks are closed 2 days a year. Day after Thanksgiving and Christmas Day.
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. 🦅
10015 Park Blvd, Seminole

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!
