Convenience and affordability are two things that make Pinellas Park homes for sale so desirable. Situated right in the center the Pinellas peninsula, Pinellas Park is right next to St. Petersburg to the south, Seminole to the west, and Largo and Clearwater to the north. US-19 cuts through the city to head north or south in Pinellas County, or you can jump on I-275 to head to Sarasota/Bradenton or Tampa in just minutes, or scoot straight on Park Boulevard across the Gandy Bridge and be in Tampa in twenty minutes or so! Or, head west on Park Boulevard and be at the beach in ten minutes. Most Pinellas Park homes for sale are single-story single family homes, though there are some townhomes, and a few condominiums scattered about. It is important to note that Pinellas Park has numerous equestrian properties, rare in Pinellas County.
While St. Petersburg claims the mantle of the artistic center of Pinellas County, Pinellas Park has a thriving little art community of its’ own. The Pinellas Park Arts Village, located downtown, has an eclectic collection of galleries, artists’ studios, classes, and displays. You can join their monthly Art Walk and meet local artists, or bring a bottle of wine to Painting With A Twist and take a painting class in a fun, relaxed environment. The Arts District is an unexpected jewel in an area once thought to be “out in the country”.
For young and growing families, Pinellas Park is a great place to live. Good schools, easy commutes, beautiful parks, and central location is a few of the things that make Pinellas Park homes for sale so attractive. Pinellas Park’s central location also means you are just a short drive to surrounding cities, and only 20 minutes or so from the Tampa Airport. If Dad is a car buff, he’s going to love the Tampa Bay Automobile Museum, with its collection of automobiles going back to the 1920’s. And like the rest of Pinellas County, folks in Pinellas Park love food, and here you will find the annual Pinellas Park FireFighters MDA Chili Blaze, with live entertainment, a chili cooking contest and all you can eat chili, and the best part is that every dollar raised goes to the Muscular Dystrophy Association. Or, if you like BBQ, don’t miss the the City of Pinellas Park Public Works annual event, the Pinellas Pork BBQ & Rodeo ( I see what you did there).
Pinellas Park was all but wilderness 100 years ago and remained quite rural until the 1970’s or so, and has a old equine and cowboy history and tradition. That tradition lives today, as a town with designated horse trails and many equestrian properties. Finding Pinellas Park homes for sale suitable for horses can be tricky, but incredibly rewarding when you find the perfect equestrian home. While it may feel like the city on Park Boulevard, there are numerous feed stores, farriers, veterinarians, and other services for your ponies. There are a number of riding schools, and there is even a nearby beach where horses are permitted! Pinellas Park also hosts the City of Pinellas Park Public Works BBQ Cook-off and Rodeo, with prizes for Bull Riding, Calf Roping, and Barrel Racing. With beer, fantastic BBQ, live music, and fireworks, this event is great fun for the whole family.
