This is a lovely, quiet place to sit and enjoy either the water views or the magnificent banyan in the cener of the park. Even though it had, on our visit, folks wandering through, one could still enjoy the quiet.

This is a small well kept park overlooking the marina. One of a number of parks in St Petersburg that are okay just to sit and watch the world go by. Seemed safe but be aware of homeless groups

The park was near our hotel and provided a beautiful place to wander and relax. There are a number of nearby places to eat and the Saturday market was also close.

This is a very nice park on Beach Drive in downtown St Petersburg. Nice walking, trees, people watching. The large I think they are Banyan Trees are great. Across the street are all the restaurants on Beach Drive, as well as the St Petersburg MFA.
