John Chesnut Sr. Park

John Chesnut Sr. Park (aka Brooker Creek) is really one of the prettiest parks in the area. If you head over to the boat ramp area, there’s a tower you can climb and look over a huge part of Lake Tarpon. Bring your cameras. And parking is free at Pinellas County Parks.

The pictures above are taken from a wooden walkway that takes you along the edge of the lake and there are always interesting things to see. We’ve walked there  with Herons or Egrets standing on the walkway handrails just watching us stroll by. Gators swim by in the water.

Finally, I hope to see you there. I’ll be wearing the hat.  🙂
