Tierra Verde

The community is located on an island near the entrance of Tampa Bay, and is connected by the bridges of the Pinellas Bayway to both St. Petersburg and St. Pete Beach. At the southern end of Tierra Verde is Fort De Soto, a county park.

In 1848 Robert E. Lee, then a lieutenant colonel in the U.S. army, recommended that Mullet Key be used for coastal defense in Florida. During the Spanish–American War of 1898, Fort De Soto was built on Mullet Key. Remains of the fort still stand, along with fortifications on Egmont Key. Pinellas County purchased Mullet Key in 1948 and created Ft. De Soto Park, with it’s rare, pristine, white sandy beaches, boat ramp, camp grounds, picnic grounds and miles of trails for biking, walking or jogging. This 1,136 acre park also features a dog park and fishing piers.
