Things To Do Here

We love our neighborhood and everything it offers.

There's a lot to do here. With very walking friendly streets, parks, a playground, fishing a school, nearby access to boat ramps, shopping, and more. Your neighborhood is a great way to pass the time.

Our Parks

Meadownlawn Park

The park is located on the East side of 14th Street North between 73rd Avenue and 75th Avenue North. This park offers a large pond, and plenty of greenspace to enjoy outdoor activities, including a playground that’s perfect for St. Petersburg’s younger residents.

Historical note about our residents

Click Here for a very cute photo of children playing on the old swing set and brief newspaper article about the playground from the St. Petersburg Independent in 1967. Anyone know these kids?

Lynch Lake Park

Lynch Lake Park is quite popular with our residents and offers a serene spot to enjoy an afternoon outdoors with family and friends.

Our neighborhood association got involved when the area was only minimally maintained and advocated successfully to have this under utilized area become an official part of our world class St. Petersburg city parks system. Now it’s a favorite place for many people to come and enjoy life outdoors.

Lakes & Fishing

Meadowlawn Lakes

There are six lakes in Meadowlawn: Lake Laguna, Lynch Lake, Mastry Lake, Meadowlawn Lake #2 , Meadowlawn Lake #3 and Viking Lake. Lake Laguna, Lynch Lake and Viking Lake are controlled by the tides. The lakes feed into Turner Creek, a canal, that runs along 77th Avenue North and flows into Riviera Bay.

Meadowlawn Ecological Center & Community Garden

In 2014 the Meadowlawn Neighborhood Association began discussions with the City of St. Petersburg and the Pinellas County School Board to possibly have the city lease the land and turn it into a Community Garden, rather than the baseball field being abandoned and left to deteriorate.

The project was then taken to the City Council for approval of funds from the Weeki Wachee money the city uses for Parks and recreation projects. The monies were approved and then came the next 7 years of negotiating and planning, and finally groundbreaking of the Meadowlawn Ecological Center and Community Garden began in 2019.

In our first seasons, we are growing fresh, healthy produce while we garden together.

This vacant former baseball field is a joint partnership with the City of St. Petersburg and the Meadowlawn Neighborhood Association to repurpose an unused space, feed our families healthy produce and get to know our neighbors.
