Featured Community… Lakewood Estates
Lakewood Estates is a beautiful and diverse neighborhood that was originally planned to encompass and feature the St. Petersburg Country Club. The neighborhood is predominantly single family in character and features winding, quiet streets named for Spanish famed explorers, cities and other significant landmarks. The Spanish influence is evident in the homes that were built during the 1920s boom time. As the area developed, the architecture of the buildings reflected the popular styles of that period: cottages, Mediterranean Revival, ranch and vernacular. Triangular medians provide green space and areas for beautification. St. Petersburg Country Club, previously known as the Lakewood Country Club, is the centerpiece of the neighborhood. The 18-hole golf course provides vistas of well-tended green space, dotted with lakes and trimmed with flowering shrubs.
Boundaries: Lake Maggiore to 54th Avenue South from Martin Luther King Street South AKA 9th Street South to 31st Streets South. Boyd Hill Nature Park lies within the neighborhood boundaries and provides recreation, entertainment and educational opportunities year round. There is a nature museum and a variety of programs for the public. Boyd Hill Park is an environmentally sensitive area, as well as home to endangered species (i.e. Gopher Turtles, flying squirrels and fox squirrels). It is also home for bald eagles, falcons, red tail and red shoulder hawks, alligators and several other species of smaller reptiles.
