Sawgrass Lake County Park
This 390-acre park in the heart of urbanized Pinellas County serves a dual purpose. Its lake, maple swamp and man-made canals act as water retention devices to prevent flood damage and at the same time, wildlife in abundance is attracted to the area. Here, you'll spot small mammals and rodents and, at dusk, you may see armadillos. A mile-long elevated boardwalk winds through the swamp and oak hammock, and an observation tower at lake's edge offers an up-top view. A tour booklet available at the Anderson Environmental Center will guide you through your walk and helps you identify the wildlife. Picnicking is permitted and there is no admission fee.
