Shore Acres Mini-Park and Food Trucks

Shore Acres Community and Mini-Park

Published on 10/06/20: Love the community of Shore Acres! Exhibit A: Two new food trucks to try at the mini park this evening! Around 8 golf carts with families and many walking over by foot to enjoy lobster, shrimp and crab from Sunkissed Food Truck! Also onsite was Shiso Crispy with delicious Asian dishes! Both delish! Made for a great evening of social distancing outdoors! The food trucks are not onsite every day, though typically at least once a week.

Within the park are seawalls for fishing, playground for kids and a nice open greenspace for football or frisbee. While the Shore Acres playground is fenced, there’s no fence along the seawall, so just be aware if your little ones venture out beyond the playground.

From their website:

“Shore Acres Florida is on a group of man made islands on the west side of Tampa Bay, in a reasonably protected area, just south of Weedon Island State Wildlife Preserve, and just north of Snell Island.” Much of Shore Acres is waterfront, with numerous canals all through the neighborhood leading out to Tampa Bay or channels which lead to Tampa Bay. This community is certainly ideal for boaters given the easy access to the bay. Plus it’s only around 10-14 minutes to for instance the Vinoy in Downtown St Pete!

Google Reviews: 77 with a 4.6/5 Average

Mini Park Address: 5325 Bayou Grande Blvd NE

Interested in buying or selling a property in the Tampa Bay Area? I’m a Florida native and truly love Saint Petersburg and the surrounding areas! I started LovingStPete on Facebook and Instagram to help clients and others learn about our area. It’s now followed by over 25 thousand people! If you have any real estate questions, simply contact me. I’d love to earn your business. I give back up to $10K at closing if you buy or sell a property with my LovingStPete Team! I love the industry so much I even founded a vacation rental advertising business and ran it for more than a decade before VRBO/HomeAway acquired.

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!
