Anna Maria Bay Front Park – Family Fun

Hammerhead structure on the playground

Bay Front Park located on the North end of the island is a quiet park that is great for a picnic with the kiddos. The Park offers calm beaches, and spectacular views of the Sky Way Bridge, and is a wonderful place for walking, fishing, and swimming! Bay Front Park features picnic tables and grills covered by pavilions, and an awesome new ADA playground. After taking a dip in the water, or an afternoon of playing on the playground with the kids, take a short stroll to Two Scoops for some ice cream.  Feel like walking to a restaurant from the park?  There are a couple of great choices. The Waterfront Restaurant is fine dining, and just a short walk to the South. A bit closer to the North is the Rod and Reel Restaurant overlooking the water.

Directions:

if you are coming from Bradenton take Manatee Avenue West to the beach.  Once you have gone over the bridge onto Anna Maria Island make a right onto Gulf Drive.  Keep heading north on Gulf Drive, when you come to the stop light
