Walsingham Equestrian Park
Evaluation of Stormwater Management Strategies
The Walsingham Equestrian Park Feasibility Study was completed in July 2020. For the Feasibility Study results statement, visit the Community Outreach web page.
The County is evaluating the potential benefits of integrating stormwater management ponds within the park that would provide new aquatic habitat while enhancing the park and trail riding experience. Filtering stormwater through ponds, wetlands, and other media would improve the quality of the water that discharges to McKay Creek and the intracoastal waterway. Other improvements could include removal of exotic and invasive vegetation and replanting with more desirable species while maintaining shady trails and a forested backyard aesthetic.
This website has been created to keep the community informed about the Feasibility Study, the Nutrient Source Tracking Study, and to provide an opportunity for input.
The Walsingham Equestrian Park is located south of 102nd Ave N and west of 125th St N, just south of Walsingham Park. The Walsingham Horseman's Association and Kiwanis Horses for Handicapped of Pinellas, both Florida non-profit corporations, currently lease the almost 60-acre park from Pinellas County.
