This cozy park features some of the nicest public tennis courts in west Bradenton. The newly-refurbished courts reopened to the public in August 2012 after undergoing a resurfacing.
And thanks to dozens of giant oak trees, 17th Avenue West Park also boasts one of the shadiest locations in the City – the perfect place to escape Florida’s hot, summer sun.
Located on the west side of 17th Avenue West between 17th and 22nd streets west, this park, along with its tennis courts, also features two jungle gyms, a large swing set, a merry-go-’round, picnic tables, a gazebo and several trash receptacles. There are also public restrooms.
The trees almost entirely shelter the park from the sun with the exception of the tennis courts. The park is surrounded on three sides by a neighborhood, and the entrance to the park is set back from busy 17th Avenue West and surrounded by a rail fence.
Parking is available at the 17th Avenue entrance.
This is one of the City’s two public parks located under a water tower (the other being The Park at Olde Westfield), so it’s easy to find.
