Fort De Soto Park, Florida.

May 6, 2016 § 3 Comments

I love that some things haven’t changed.  I remember fondly the trips my family took to Fort De Soto when I was a child. I’ve enjoyed getting reacquainted again with the park this Spring.

The largest park within the Pinellas County Park System, Fort De Soto park consists of 1,136 acres made up of five interconnected islands (keys). These keys are home to beach plants, mangroves, wetlands, palm hammocks, hardwoods and scores of native plants.

The area of Fort De Soto for over 400 years has attracted a variety of visitors. Among the earliest was the Tocobaga Indians, who preceded the Spanish conquistadors who began the European entrance into the Florida peninsula – wikipedia
