New Eagle Lake Park Grand Opening March 30th
Eagle Lake Park offers the freedom to explore and abundant opportunities for relaxation and recreation. With more than 163 acres, this new public resource offers a slice of natural tranquility in the midst of urban life. The park will open to the public on Monday, March 29, in time for the public schools' spring break.
The grand opening of the first new park introduced since 2001 is set for 10 a.m. on Tuesday, March 30, between shelters 4 and 5 in the northwest corner of the park.
Eagle Lake Park is in the City of Largo, with the main entrance at 1800 Keene Road. The park was purchased in two separate transactions from the Taylor family, early pioneers in Pinellas County who used the property for cattle grazing and as a citrus grove. Amenities include a playground, picnic shelters, fishing piers, restrooms, dog park, paved recreation trails and a 2000-foot boardwalk. The habitat of the park includes native vegetation, restored wetlands and diverse local wildlife.
