The Weedon Island Preserve consists of a variety of picturesque views and activities to discover as an entire family. With over four miles of paddling trails and 6,600 feet of ADA accessible boardwalk, which includes three separate observation platforms, anyone can get away from their urban environment within minutes from St. Petersburg and Tampa. The education center, fishing pier and kayaking opportunities create a full day’s worth of activities to enjoy the Florida outdoors.
Weedon Island is a Pinellas County, FL project managed under the Pinellas County Extension Office. The education center exhibits the native plants and wildlife which exist on the island today. It also provides a background on Native American life and how cultures evolved through the years. Native Americans were experts in living off the land and water. The Weedon Island Preserve Cultural and Natural History Center shows how we can co-exist with wildlife and its habitat by comparing how they lived within this environment 1500 years ago.
