That’s your main reason for visiting this little strip of a park. On a good day I’ve passed photo sessions at the entrance (so you can get the flashy, blue dome of the Dali Museum as well as the steps of the Mahaffey Theater) and along the waterfront (capture both the St. Pete skyline AND the little yachts) BUT THERE’S...

I am not sure how I originally found the Albert Whitted Park but I will say I am glad I did. Albert Whitted Playground is an airplane themed playground. The equipment is unique and blends in with the Albert Whitted Airport, to the south of the playground. It is fun and well maintained. The playground has a lookout tower, similar... More

Incredible views. Marina on one side and airport on the other. My boys love watching the boats sail in and out and the small airplanes taking off and landing. The playground equipment is airplane themed and good for young and older kids. My boys are 8 and 4 and they both love it. Warnings: free parking spaces are limited. Bring... More

Went there for the World's Largest Food Truck Rally. It was a nice location for the event, on water with a large green space in the center. Convenient to get to and park.

A good option for parking to sit by the water, see the pier de-construction, and easy access to the Dali Museum and other arts/museum facilities.

If you want a view of Tampa Bay; an opportunity to watch general aviation aircraft and a chance for small children to play on the playground, this is for you.

If this review is for the park that I think it is, It's a great little park. Especially for kids. The playground is of a airport/airplane theme that I can only imaging kids would love (I don't have kids). It could get very hot out there as there are not many trees or shade, so slather on some sunscreen and... More

The park is tucked away at the south end of St. Pete's downtown area. Great views of the bay and St. Pete. It's what might be called a "linear park."

This is a fun little park for the kids. Easy free parking, Clean playground. Right on the water and next to Albert Whitted airport so plane watching is part of the fun. I'd prefer an onsite bathroom but all in all it is great.

What a fun park to bring children....You can see planes landing nearby and have a fantastic view of the waterfront...We have even seen dolphins swimming near the seawall...There is ample parking, picnic tables and restrooms...
