TypeAttraction
CategoryNature
DescriptionWeedon Island Preserve is an expansive 3,000-acre natural area on Tampa Bay in north St. Petersburg. It is comprised mostly of marine ecosystems with some uplands. Indigenous peoples occupied this site for thousands of years. A varied modern history also is part of the preserve's legacy.

Weedon Island Preserve is a well-known birding and fishing site. The preserve's fishing pier and outlying oyster bars are ideal sites for catching sea trout, snook and sheepshead. (State of Florida Regulations governing saltwater fishing apply - commercial fishing is prohibited)

Visitors can tour the preserve via monthly guided preserve hikes, bird hikes, and photography hikes. Two self-guided paddling trails allow for exploration of the preserve's islands and waterways. More than 4.7 miles of boardwalks and trails offer visitors an opportunity to enjoy and experience natural Florida. Weedon Island also hosts a variety of annual sponsored special events that are fun for the whole family.

Nestled deep within the preserve is the Weedon Island Preserve Cultural and Natural History Center. Visitors are encouraged to view all of the exciting exhibits, explore the center's Gift Shop that carries cultural and natural history items. A resource center is also available for citizens to explore environmental and cultural topics.
