Lido Key .... The South Lido Park

Posted by Tamara Berryman on Friday, February 24th, 2012 at 3:18pm.


 South Lido Park is located on Ben Franklin Drive at the southern tip of Lido Key. The South Lido Park is surrounded by four bodies of water; The Gulf of Mexico, Big Pass, Sarasota Bay, and Brushy Bayou.  From the South Lido Park views of Sarasota’s downtown skyline can be had, especially the night time the Sarasota skyline is brilliant from the South Lido Park.  At the park you will find a picnic area shaded by Australian Pines.  At a separate facility at the north end of the park, visitors can enjoy a nature trail which includes scenic overlooks and boardwalks.  This is a great spot to land your kayak and explore the waters surrounding Lido Key.

  • The park's amenities include:
  • free parking
  • rest rooms
  • picnic tables
  • cooking grilles
  • playground equipment
  • volleyball court
  • nature trails
  • observation tower and decks
  • canoe trail
  • fishing spot also
  • Lifeguards are on duty during weekends from Memorial Day to Labor Day.
