We are making the most of our downtime during the holiday season! We recently took the kids to Crest Lake Park, a beautiful park near our home in Clearwater. The weather was perfect. It had rained that morning, so it was a little cool (enough for a light jacket) and it was a bit cloudy, so not too hot.
The kids ran around, had fun on the swings, climbed the boulders and walked the boardwalks around the huge lake. Such beautiful views! There are 4 play areas where the kids can climb, swing and run around. There was also a really nice splash pad that you can turn on by placing your hand on the pole nearby. It was a little too chilly for the kids to play in the water, but we’ll definitely come back when the weather warms up!
We also got to spend time with my sister and new niece, Kylie. I had to grab a few photos of her hanging out with us!
If you have a pet, there is a nice dog park. There are some shelters in the park if you’re planning a party or gathering with friends and family.
If you live in Clearwater or Pinellas County, Crest Lake Park is a beautiful park to visit. We’re planning to go back more often and even get some exercise while the kids play. It’s also a great place to take family photos!
