Ballast Point is adjacent to Hillsborough Bay which makes for a great spot to enjoy the sunrise or sunset on the water! There is a 600-foot pier, a shaded splash park, playground, picnic areas, a gazebo and a boat dock/ramp. Perfect spot for a picnic!
Lovely place to watch a sunset or have a family picnic. If you aren't bringing food there's a restaurant/food joint with some tasty meals.
Pros: great spot to just go and relax and watch the sunset Good fishing spot
