A Day on Tarpon Lake in Palm Harbor
By Robert Lipply

When many people think of Tarpon Springs, they think of beautiful Lake Tarpon. Oddly enough, Lake Tarpon spreads throughout Tarpon Springs as well as much of Palm Harbor. At over 2500 acres long, this is the largest lake in Pinellas County. It provides recreation and enjoyment for many residents. People come to Lake Tarpon for boating, fishing and jet skiing. One of the most popular fish in this water is the large mouth bass which makes sport fishing here increasingly popular.

There are many great city parks that have waterfront property on this lake. Anderson Park and John Chesnut Sr. Park offer boat ramps, picnic pavilions, scenic walking trails, and playgrounds overlooking this stunning view. You can host a family picnic, a birthday party, or just have a relaxing day with your family here.

The Lansbrook Community also has a private park for its residents to view Lake Tarpon. This charming spot is considered prime real estate in Palm Harbor and adds to the value of homes in this neighborhood. Families enjoy gathering together here to watch their children play, while enjoying waterfront views each Florida homeowner would love.

If you are looking for a great place to spend a sunny day in Pinellas County, don't miss Lake Tarpon. While there are many great saltwater locations in this area, nothing compares to a leisurely day on this lake.
