The cultural heart of Tarpon Springs is shady Craig Park overlooking Spring Bayou. The serene waters of the Bayou attracted the town's very first settler, and many wealthy northerners of the 19th century later built their winter homes on this "Golden Crescent." Still very much a town landmark, the Bayou is the site of the annual Greek Orthodox Epiphany Celebration and cross-diving ceremony, and the winter home to numerous manatees. The Tarpon Springs Heritage is located on Craig Park. Craig Park offers a boat ramp, picnic area, playground, tennis court, and recreation center. The recreation center is only open during various programs and events. The park also features a band shell for concerts.
