“Cliff Stephens Park is in the city of Clearwater and is 44 acres in size. The park includes trails for bicycling, hiking and inline skating, as well as opportunities for boating, fishing, a disc golf course, a 19 station exercise course, and picnic area.” -City of Clearwater.


We were in this neighborhood last week as we explored Kapok Park. These two parks are within walking distance of each other on the Ream-Wilson Trail and also share Alligator Creek which runs through both. You could probably add another half mile onto the Kapok Loop by walking Stephenson Park as well.

Stephenson Park has a parking lot at 600 Fairwood Avenue. Bike riders on the Ream-Wilson Trail can ride through and around both parks before continuing on to Safety Harbor to the East or Clearwater to the West.

One feature setting Stephenson Park apart is a challenging disc golf course. It's set along the creek and on breezy days it could be very challenging! It may not be your sport but it is fun to watch and the players all seem to be very friendly and definitely are having a good time.

We know of three disc courses in Pinellas parks to date. The first was in Hammock Park in Dunedin, this one in Clearwater and we will be visiting another in the not too distant future.

This park is quite shady and could be a welcome retreat on a warm day. So we'll call it a cool place - to take a walk, perhaps wet a line if you are a fisherman or avail yourself of a bench or picnic table to read a book, have lunch or just take in your surroundings while you commune with nature. You're sure to find some web-footed and feathered friends along the shoreline or in the water to enjoy as well.

Cliff Stephenson Park is definitely worth your visit so add it to your to-do list. Who knows you might even decide to try disc golf. We have seen all ages playing so you are never to old or to young just like that other game called golf.

We should mention that the entire loop in this park is not a paved path and it might not be as welcoming for wheelchairs as others we visit. Niki was able to make the circuit on her mobility scooter so it is doable in that way.

In parting we wish you a special Sunday and our hope is you will decide to “Go Wild!” regularly and visit the great parks that are all around us. Maybe we will meet you down one of these trails sometime.
