Head Southwest of Downtown St. Petersburg and you’ll arrive at the historic neighborhood of Roser Park. Characterized by hilly tree-lined streets and a winding creek, this hidden gem was one of St. Petersburg’s first suburbs. The area is listed on the National Registry of Historic Places, and within its boundaries has 146 historic buildings.
The neighborhood, with its lush vegetation, paved red brick roads and sloping hills, is a landscape unlike any other in St. Petersburg. Roser Park was originally built with the intention of just being a recreational park, but once city residents recognized its potential, they began migrating in its direction.
The style of homes in Roser Park includes Mediterranean and Spanish architecture, as well as a range of colonial revival and bungalows. Take a walking tour along Booker Creek and throughout the neighborhood to explore the homes and historical significance of Roser Park.
