Title: Cypress Point Park in Tampa
Post by: TBTourist on February 11, 2010, 04:00:36 PM
A little known park in Tampa is the Cypress Point Park.  It's located where West Cypress Street dead-ends before you run into Tampa Bay.  Turn left at the dead-end and follow the road into the park.

It doesn't have any playgrounds for the kids, but it's a great place to have a picnic.  There are several pavilions that you can probably reserve or just take one if no one is there.  They have grills there to use as well, and a sign said that you can't take your own grill.  Which is just as well, because where will you dump the hot coals and who wants a smoke smelling grill in your car anyways?

It does have a real nice beach overlooking Tampa Bay, public restrooms, drinking fountains and a real nice beach volleyball court out by the parking lot.  Dogs must be kept on a leash but no dogs are allowed on the beach.
