Gators!

Loved this little park. Great boardwalk allows you to safely look for alligators. We saw a mama alligator and about 30 babies. Very cool!

We love walking along trails glimpsing wildlife without fear of tripping over roots or dips in the trail. This is a beautiful boardwalk wide enough to walk side by side while enjoying natural foliage as well as birds, turtles, and alligators along the way......safely! The indoor display could use an update possibly with more information about the wildlife, otherwise Sawgrass... More

Entrance is through a quiet residential area. A hike that is long enough for break a sweat. Alligators can be seen but very few. The board walk is very nice.

We (3 adults and 2 5 year olds) got here at 9 on a Saturday and had the place to ourselves (with maybe a dozen older folks getting their morning walk in). We strolled across the first bridge to the observation tower. On the way we saw the mama gator and her clutch and several of her young gators from... More

So you are in the city and you do not have time to travel south to the Everglades, but you would like to see a little bit of "natural Florida." Try out Sawgrass Lake Park. It is hidden in the back of one of St. Pete's neighborhoods, near the highway (I-275) and you would never know its there. It is... More

My sons love Sawgrass Lake. The boardwalk trails are an easy walk even for the smallest adventurers, and they are wide enough for strollers. Gator spotting is out favorite actively. We were lucky enough to get a glimpse of over a dozen new babies on our last visit. Sunscreen and insect repellent are a must.

The boardwalks through the swamp were a treat. We saw baby alligators, turtles and many birds. Everything was clean and the trails were well marked. This park has so many opportunities for viewing wildlife!

This a great park to photograph and get a nice walk in at the same time. The boardwalk is great for individuals in a wheelchair to be able to see gators and other wild life.

Sawgrass is a nice park It can get a little busy depending on the time of day that you visit. If you want some quiet/alone time, it's probably better visit the park early morning during the week and avoid the weekends. The park is a good place to exercise, or just nature/people watch..If you're lucky, you might see gators, snakes... More

Sawgrass is a hidden gem in Pinellas County, FL. The board walks takes you to a Lake that is full of aquatic life including alligators, turtles, all kinds of birds as well as other reptiles and amphibians. It is a nice shaded walk to the 2 story wooden observation tower that overlooks the beautiful lake. There are many other trails... More
