Lassing Park along St Petersburg Waterfront

Lassing Park – St Pete Top 5 Waterfront Park System

Published on 01/29/21: Did you know that “…with 137 parks and 7 miles of preserved downtown waterfront, St. Pete boasts the THIRD largest urban waterfront park system in North America”? Love it, but now which waterfront park to visit? Last night, Colt and I chose to throw the frisbee at Lassing Park, just south of downtown. As you might imagine from the locale (Colt circled in 2nd pic), 80% of our time was a hands-on marine biology class.

I should add, Colt’s instructor/dad isn’t exactly ‘qualified’ in Marine Biology. So as a Realtor, we discussed the various homes the creatures use for refuge.

What’s your favorite park to visit around the Tampa Bay Area? Lassing Park is one of the ones close to downtown St Pete that we love. We’re all very lucky to live here in paradise! Plus, the moonrise last night was incredible. Watching it “lift out of the ocean”, as Colt said.

Google Reviews: 787 reviews with a 4.6/5 average

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!
