Joan M. Durante Community Park-voted one of the best things to do on Longboat on Tripadvisor

Joan M. Durante Park, located at 5550 Gulf of Mexico Drive, is the result of a private/public partnership to enhance and restore one of the few remaining vacant island properties on Longboat Key to a viable wetland and coastal hammock forest.

The 32 acre site is located on Sarasota Bay two miles from the north end of Longboat Key.  The site had previously been developed with cabins, these had been demolished and invasive exotic vegetation had taken over the site by the time the Town acquired it in the late eighties.
