One of my favorite places to go has closed!!! Fred Howard Park in Tarpon Springs has closed both the beach and the causeway!!! The reason for the closing is due to bridge and roadway reconstruction. The Pinellas County Park & Recreation Department estimates that this part of the park will remained closed for approximately one year!!!
The remainder of the park will remain open, including the picnic facilities and playground. While you can no longer go out the causeway to the beach, you can still enjoy bike rides through the park, play ball there and enjoy the canoe and kayak waterway trails.
