As the home of an artificial reef, Sand Key Park provides opportunities for scuba diving and fishing. Manmade materials are placed in the water and marine life takes over--barnacles and algae attach themselves and turn the underwater area into a haven for fish and other animals. A salt marsh further enhances the experience, bringing in herons, pelicans, roseate spoonbills and other birds to the area. Look for seashells in the shallow waters, which abound in this environment. You can reserve a picnic shelter with a grill, and there's a playground at the site. Check out kayak and bicycle rental options for exploring the sea or trails along the coast. Dog owners can take their furry friends to a special designated park for dogs. Put Sand Key Park at the forefront of your travel plans using our Clearwater trip itinerary builder website.

Sand Key Park reviews
The writeup we found online and in guide books overstated the attractions at this park. Instead of a salt marsh, what we found was an urban retention pond. Not much in the way of boardwalks either..... more

I spent the day here with our group of women who came in to celebrate our 1st annual 40+Double Dutch Club Retreat. We utilize the park facility to gather and have fun. The park offers us the space needed for such a large event. The available service, such as bathrooms was much needed, throughout the day. The park was clean and well maintained. There's a fenced-in pet area and other areas of activities to keep children engaged. Kudos to the recreational team.
Love love it here but be careful my kids got stung by a jelly fish
