Parks & Facilities

The City of New Port Richey offers 10 beautiful parks and a newly renovated Recreation and Aquatic center within its 4 square miles.

Many of the city’s parks are located along the banks of the Pithlachascotee (or Cotee, as it's known by the residents) River, with boat docks and kayak launches. It's not uncommon to see dolphins and manatees swimming by, and a wide variety of native birds and other Florida wildlife along the banks.

The James E. Grey Preserve is an 80 acre wildlife preserve that is part of the Great Florida Birding Trail, and is home to 140 different kinds of birds. It also offers spectacular viewing opportunities for deer, wild boar, turtles, and manatees.

New Port Richey allows dogs in three of its major parks, and also offers a "dog park" specifically dedicated to our canine community's enjoyment.  Dogs are welcome in Cotee River Park, Orange Lake and Sims Park on a leash.  In the Meadows Dog Park, dogs are free to run off leash.  Please be sure to clean up after your dog.

We invite you to experience the natural beauty of Florida and all it has to offer - right here in New Port Richey.

While entry to the parks, parking and launching your boat are offered free of charge, the City also offers facility rentals for parties, events, family reunions, and other social gatherings.

For  information on facility rentals or to reserve a park shelter please visit the reservations page.

Sims

Sims Park and Orange Lake Park
Grand Blvd. & Bank St.
New Port Richey, FL

Details:
George R. Sims, one of New Port Richey’s earliest promoters, donated Sims Park (then named Enchantment Park) to the City in 1924. He died in 1954, and in accordance with his instructions, he was buried about 50 feet from Orange Lake without a tombstone - just a redbud tree to mark the spot. (However, his remains were moved to a cemetery some years later.) Sims Park is protected by New Port Richey’s very first ordinance, and because of Ordinance One, Sims Park will remain the people’s park forever.  Dogs are welcome in Sims Park and around Orange Lake on a leash.
