We arrived just in time to watch the sunset. It was stunning! I regret not finding out about this park earlier. We would have loved to have spent some time on the beach.

Too many people, too many cars, the pay for park did not work and was a nightmare. Way to crowded and noisy.

I went to Fred Howard Beach with my 21 year old grandson and his girlfriend. I had been there before and knew it was nice. We paid $5 for parking and got a ticket to put in the windshield. The beach is an island with swimming all around it. A causeway connects it to the mainland. The beach is clean,... More

Fred Howard Park has it all, shady areas to relax, read and enjoy being outside. Adequate restrooms near all areas. The beach is great white sand, sunbathe or rent a paddleboard. We had Easter dinner here last year. Walk from the park to the beach and see dolphins frolicking in the Gulf.

Fred Howard Park is just lovely! Not only does it have the beach on the Gulf but also pavilions,playgrounds and lots of area to roam. Sun and sand and fun in Pinellas County, FL! A big thank you to the Rangers there, especially ranger Pam for finding and returning a lost cell phone over the weekend.

I understand that the town needs to generate revenue, but I wish they'd keep the bathrooms cleaner for the $5. Truly an very, very excellent park otherwise.

A very pretty beach with lots of palm trees and plenty of parking. The beach had powdery white sand and plenty of space for people to spread out. There were restrooms, but no concession stand, so bring your own food, but beware of aggressive seagulls! Beach chair rentals available.
