Vinoy Park - Downtown St Petersburg Waterfront

By Published On: February 8th, 2021

Vinoy Park in Downtown St Pete – Waterfront

Published on 02/08/21: I highly recommend spending a morning at Vinoy Park for a sunrise. Whether you use the expansive green space for an activity, use the meandering sidewalks for a stroll, or relax on one of the numerous benches with a cup of Joe, you can’t go wrong. The perfect scene is set with the new St. Pete Pier, Vinoy Marina, beautiful city skyline, and water lapping on the seawall…

While it was a late night last night (Go Bucs – Champa Bay!), this morning I did just that, visited to reflect and capture a few shots. The pictures don’t do the natural beauty justice, though gives you a general idea.

From the Waterfront Park’s Foundation website “Vinoy Park is 11.6 acres. It features beautiful views of Tampa Bay, the Pier, the Vinoy Hotel Marina and Downtown St. Petersburg. Its spacious open green space is often used for special events.”

Often even doing gift card giveaways to support local. LovingStPete is now followed by over 48 thousand people on social media!

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.

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!
