DescriptionGo to: www.laurelparkhistoricdistrict.com to download a tour map.Laurel Park is one of Sarasota’s oldest downtown neighborhoods. Located between Orange Avenue and Washington Boulevard south of Morrill Street, it is approximately 50 acres stretching over nine city blocks. While primarily residential, the neighborhood includes some businesses and was once the home of Sarasota’s County Courthouse and Sarasota’s daily newspaper, The Sarasota Herald.

The Laurel Park historic district has 270 contributing structures. Two of these are individually designated National Register buildings, and 20 have been locally designated historic by the City of Sarasota. The district’s streetscapes remain characteristic of Sarasota in the 20's with narrow sidewalks and original brick paving by the Burns and McAlpin Paving Co. exposed in many of its streets.

On March 11, 2008 Laurel Park became the seventh historic district in the City of Sarasota to be awarded the honor of designation as a National Register of Historic Places District.

A visit to the district would not be complete without a visit to the neighboring National Register District of Burns Court. Here you will find cafes, restaurants, boutiques and an independent movie theatre in a setting of 1920's med-rev bungalows.
