POPULAR PARKS IN AND NEAR DUNEDIN

The City of Dunedin is home to many small parks that have amenities such as trails, picnic shelters and playgrounds. Dunedin also has its own “Happy Tails” dog park. Here are a just few of Dunedin’s larger parks and also some other popular parks located in neighboring cities.

PINELLAS TRAIL

pinellas trailThe Pinellas Trail is a linear park and recreation trail that became open to the public in December of 1990 and extends over 30 miles from Tarpon Springs to St. Petersburg. This abandoned CSX railway corridor has been transformed into a scenic, safe place for outdoor enthusiasts to bike, walk, jog, and rollerblade. The trail consists of amenities such as bike racks, benches, water fountains, and rest areas. Approximately 90,000 people a month enjoy the natural landscaping that shade areas of the trail and connects many of Pinellas County’s most picturesque parks. The trail is a great way to explore Pinellas County as views of coastal waterways, parks, roadways and residential neighborhoods are all lined along the route. Eight overpasses were built with safety in mind, allowing trail-goers to cross major intersections easily with no need to stop. The Pinellas Trail allows residents and visitors to exercise and enjoy the outdoors at a place amazingly close to their own front door.
