Pinellas County Florida Park
Sandy Key located on the Florida Gulf Coast is a pristine, peaceful paradise among the hustle and bustle of Clearwater Beach, it's the perfect place to get away, without actually going away. It's the best of both worlds with a beautiful white-sand beaches and dog-friendly park too. Two large full service resorts offering numerous amenities lie within steps of the park which is conveniently located next to Clearwater Pass, making access to the Gulf a breeze.
This beautiful park has two distinct areas—a beach and a park. In the park proper are two picnic shelters with grills, a playground, restroom and a dog park. Grills, picnic tables, and water fountains are but a few amenities. A salt marsh with viewing benches further enhances the park, where heron, roseate spoonbill, great horned owl, anhinga, and common moorhen nest and feed. Sand Key Park’s natural communities include a beach where sea turtles annually deposit eggs. The nearby Clearwater Aquarium takes responsibility for these nests and keeps statistics.
Sand Key, a barrier island on Florida's Gulf Coast, stretches from Madeira Beach through Redington Beach, North Redington Beach, Redington Shores, Indian Shores, Indian Rocks Beach, Belleair Shore, and Belleair Beach into Clearwater.
