Parks & Preserves
Hurricane Ian Park Closures
All Pinellas County parks, preserves, boat ramps and beach access parks have reopened.
New Mobile Parking App
Starting September 7, 2022, park and boat ramp patrons will be able to use their mobile phones to make convenient parking payments at most parks and boat ramps using the Flowbird mobile parking app as we fully transition to a pay-by-plate system that no longer requires you to display a receipt upon parking. This upgrade will replace hand-to-hand, cash payment transactions at the front entrance booth at Fort De Soto and alleviate traffic entering the park. To learn more, view our news release.
The Parks and Conservation Resources Department maintains more than 20,000 acres of parks and preserves. Picnic shelters, camping, playgrounds, boat ramps and trails are among the many amenities enjoyed by our residents and visitors.
