The last time I visited this park was the first time I visited this park. I had heard a lot about it. Many of my friends told me about the park. They had gone out there on many occasions. So this past week I took a drive out with my camera and walked around. It’s not a large park but there is plenty of parking and the beach area is really nice.
The playground area was really clean and there’s a beach volleyball set up as well. There are plenty of places to get out of the summer sun if you visit during that time of the year. Being from the other coast where the beaches are much larger I still found that this was a really nice park especially if you have children.
A Great Place to Go Even In January
In January the crowds will be much small so as we move into spring it would be a good idea to get there early. There is a parking fee and with all the parks in Hernando county, No Pets Allowed.
If you are a bird watcher or simply love to see the gulls coming and going, this is a great place to visit. This park is a really relaxing place to go, especially this time of the year. The park also includes an opportunity to learn near the observation platform.
How To Find Pine Island Park
Pine Island Park is at the end of Pine Island Drive. Here’s the official address 10840 Pine Island Drive Spring Hill, FL 34607 This link will take you to the location via Google maps. On the drive out you will see natures best. For me the drive along the marsh and Florida trees and wild life is just as if not more rewarding than getting to my destination.
If you like nature and have the time, bring a camera you be glad that you did. I will say that if you are wanting to take photos and don’t want to be rushed go during the week. This is a two-lane road with water on both sides. There is very little room to pull over and minimal places to do so.
How To Find Pine Island Park again it’s a bit of a drive and the first time that you get on Pine Island drive, you’ll think that you will be driving forever. Don’t fear, you’ll be there in no-time. So if you have some time this winter or spring, take a drive out and enjoy what nature has to offer. You will definitely be glad that you did.
