Pinellas Park was officially incorporated in 1914. Developer F.A. Davis saw its potential as being the heart of the Pinellas peninsula, so he bought over 12,000 acres. To attract investors, he built the Colony House where wealthy visitors could eat, sleep, and socialize all while overlooking a farm and rows of tents where people were living until their homes were completed.
Today, residents of Pinellas Park enjoy a robust parks and recreation system that includes dog parks, shuffleboard courts, an equestrian center, trails, and a canoe/kayak launch. There is also a 600-seat performing arts center where attendees can enjoy concerts, tribute bands, and shows for less than $20 a ticket. Restaurant options abound, including several that offer authentic Vietnamese cuisine.
If you're looking to live in Pinellas Park, you have options, including condos and town houses, single family homes, gated golf course communities, and even large equestrian estates.
