John Chesnut Sr. Park

2200 East Lake Road
Palm Harbor, FL 34682

This park is home to various wildlife including raccoons, alligators, various waterfowl, hawks, vultures, tortoises/turtles and more. This provides many pleasant hours for nature enthusiasts and families.
 
Lake Tarpon, immediately adjacent, is five miles long and one mile wide, generally 8-12 feet deep. Lake Tarpon can accommodate boats with combustion engines. Additionally, a canoe trail is a landlocked waterway connected to an interior lake, but can only accommodate non-combustion engines.
 
For those who prefer sports, a softball field bring your own equipment. There are three nature trails, each approximately 3,000 feet in length. The North Trail begins at Shelter #10, running through a cypress swamp to the canoe trail it does not loop back. The Peggy Park Trail features a self-guided. The elevated boardwalk runs along the boat ramp, leading to an elevated lookout tower for a scenic overview of Lake Tarpon. Swimming is prohibited inside the park.
