Parks and Recreation
South Pasadena’s small size also compensates for four main parks and four small “mini” parks within its city limits. The four mini parks include 14th Avenue Park, Huffman Way Park, Palm Island Park, and Island Drive Park. Two of the four main parks are “habitat” parks where you can visit a butterfly garden, see terns nesting on the shoreline, and enjoy the tropical foliage. At Galatea Park you can also view some of Florida’s natural foliage as well as a Greek statue that attracts all South Pasadena residents and visitors.
Duryea Park is a park where South Pasadena’s residents and visitors can enjoy a round of tennis, a cookout with friends and family and a playground for their children. Directly across the street is the Greek statue at Galatea Park surrounded by beautiful landscaping.
South Pasadena has a large variety of restaurants for a small town offering a variety of cuisine. Residents not only enjoy this fare, but also take a short drive inland where they can find just about any type of food desirable. Restaurants, both small and franchise, are within close proximity to South Pasadena real estate property. Being so close to St.Petersburg and St. Pete Beach where all the tourists spend money, is a plus for South Pasadena residents to enjoy some of the finest restaurants in the area. There are numerous dining establishments to sample in all of the hotels as well. Many outside cafe’s allow pets on the patios too. You won’t run out of dining option living in South Pasadena that’s for sure
