Crescent Lake & Crescent Heights
Crescent Lake and its surrounding neighborhood is located one mile north of St.Petersburg, Florida's central business district. It is made up of around 550 residences in 35 square blocks plus a 56 acre public park.
Crescent Lake lies at the center of our neighborhood, surrounded by the beautiful 56 acre public park. East of the lake is the "Great Banyan Tree", a living "jungle gym" for generations of our children. It is featured on the neighborhood logo. To the south is Huggins-Stengel Field, a baseball field that was once the Spring Training home for the New York Yankees. Next to it is the neighborhood's most visible landmark, a 1923 water tower, repainted as a giant salt water aquarium by local muralist, Tom Stovall.
East and west of the park are about 550 residences on streets dotted with stately trees. Some of the streets still have the original brick paving and hex-block sidewalks.
