Bayport Park was originally developed in the 1950s with boat launch facilities and a fishing pier. The 1.5-acre historic park site, located at the tip of an upland peninsula, is owned by Hernando County. The western portion of the park borders a tract of land that was purchased by the District in 1999.
As part of a cooperative effort, the park has been expanded to include 10 acres of District-owned land. The entire park has undergone a renovation that includes a 144-foot scenic boardwalk along the coastline, nature trails, shelters, a pavilion, new restrooms, an upgraded boat ramp and additional parking for boat trailers.
Along with providing additional parking, the goal of the expansion was to create more areas for park patrons to experience the natural coastline and to protect the property’s historical and cultural aspects.
