Beach Park's easy access to the highways makes it desirable for a beautiful beach day in Clearwater Beach or trips taking off from Tampa International Airport. Beach Park is lined with sidewalks, many locals enjoy bike riding through the winding streets, and is only a short distance from Hyde Park Village. One of the attractive reasons to live in Beach Park is the close proximity not only to downtown, but to many different activities in the International shopping area as well as the West Shore business district.
When Beach Park was developed in 1924, it was required that all homes be built in a Mediterranean influenced style of architecture. Franklin 0. Adams, the Beach Park Company architect and chairman of the Board of Art Control called the style "Spanish Plateresque." It was a Floridian take on Italian Renaissance, and included influences from Moorish and Spanish architecture. Today Beach Park consists mostly of single-family homes. Mediterranean architecture remains the most common type. Many of the Spanish Plateresque mansions that were built when Beach Park was first developed in the 1920s still exist.
Beach Park is surrounded by wonderful selection of nearby schools including: Grady Elementary School, Mabry Elementary School, Coleman Middle School, and Plant Senior High School. For higher education: University of Tampa and University of South Florida.
