Island Park

Nestled even further back in the labyrinth of the Sarasota bayfront than Marina Jack's is a huge island that is host to a beautiful park. Maps alternatingly refer to this as either "Bayfront Park" and/or "Island Park", but both of these fall short of satisfying my standards for island nomenclature. Don't just name the island after the park; the island was there first, and like Eliot's cats, has a name of its own whether you know it or not.

I find it a most peaceful place to stroll in the mornings with a cigar, but have also given thought to renting a Segway to scoot around its winding paths.
