Parks & Nature
Throughout the city, you’ll find parks and public green spaces, including Coachman Park, the jewel of downtown Clearwater, where signature annual events such as the Clearwater Jazz Holiday take place each year.
Want to immerse yourself in nature? Head east to Moccasin Lake Nature Park, where you’ll find shaded trails and boardwalks that lead you through centuries-old oaks in the park’s 51 acres. Spot gopher tortoises, raccoons, and (from a distance, please) alligators, or climb to the top of the observation tower to take it all in. Meet the park’s resident birds of prey – including a bald eagle – who were brought here after being injured in the wild.
Traveling with your pup? About 20 minutes northeast of Clearwater Beach, Enterprise Dog Park is a great place. This massive, fenced-in park offers shaded trails, a creek and an area with agility equipment.
