Step back in time while circling Crescent Lake Park1320 5th St N St Petersburg, , FL 33701
Sprawling 56 acres, the park provides a serene atmosphere for a nice walk, surrounded by historical homes and architecture. The architecture of Crescent Lake, founded in the 1920s, is an eclectic mix of early and mid-twentieth century styles including Colonial Revival, Mediterranean Revival, Art Deco and Tudor. Eighth Street has a particularly fine collection of 1920s Tudor houses. Along the lake are some early Ranch-type houses dating from the late 1930s. The park's famous \"Great Banyan Tree\" serves as a living \"jungle gym\" for the kiddies, and the park's 56 acres is a great place for long walks, jogs, and roller skating.
