Summer Programs

Numerous St. Petersburg museums offer summer programs that you may want to look into. For sure the James Museum (892-4200), Museum of Fine Arts (896-2667), The Dali (823-3767), Imagine Museum (300-1700), Morean Art Center (822-7872), American Stage (823-7529), Practically Pikasso (822-5204) and these are just the few that come to mind. I’m certain there are many others as well.

Additionally, the St. Petersburg Parks and Recreation Department offers a variety of summer camps, including elementary and middle school camps, aquatics camps, tech camps and a therapeutic recreation camp, that provides youth with a chance to experience something new at an affordable price. Summer Camps run Monday, June 3, through Friday, August 9. Times for camps vary. Fee assistance is available for those who qualify. Visit to learn more and to view our summer camp guide. Come play, learn and explore with us!

I hope these resources will provide ideas and opportunities for the upcoming summer! Bonnie Hargrett, SIPOA President

The Olympic and Sprint distance races will follow the same routes as last year, and delays can be expected from approximately 7 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Most roads will be open, but traffic will be stopped at various times on several streets to accommodate the safety of both the athletes who will participate in the race and spectators who will watch from the sidelines. Local residents are encouraged to find alternate routes during race time.

Several sections of St. Petersburg roads and streets are expected to be closed:

    • Brightwaters Boulevard which will be closed between Snell Isle Boulevard and the turnaround in the 1900 block of Brightwaters
    • Bayshore Drive which will be closed between Seventh Avenue N and Fifth Avenue S
    • North Shore Drive NE and Coffee Pot Blvd. which will be closed between Seventh and 22nd avenues N
    • Fifth Avenue S (Dali Blvd) which will be closed from First to Fourth streets
    • Pinellas Point Drive will be closed (drivers will be allowed to cross when safe to do so

    Some roads that will be subject to intermittent closures and delays include:

    • First Avenue S between 28th and First streets S
    • Fourth Street S between 18th Avenue S and Pinellas Point Drive
    • Portions of First, Third, Fourth and Sixth streets S between First Avenue S and Pinellas Point Drive

Snell Isle Fountain area hit by vandals

We heard today from SPPD that Snell Isle’s property crime report for the month of March was near perfect. There were no residential or vehicle burglaries for the entire month! GREAT GOING to everyone who is LOCKING UP and moving valuables out of sight. Thanks too to all our wonderful Block Captains for keeping everyone in the loop regarding crime. However, I do have sad news to report to you this evening…

The recently beautified Snell Isle Fountain area was hit by vandals who maliciously sprayed a chemical that killed 2 wide swaths of grass abutting Brightwaters Blvd (adjacent the stop sign) and the spray carried into one of the planted beds causing the beautiful purple Lantana and some of the gorgeous silver Dusty Miller to shrivel up. This was very painful to observe as so much time and energy has gone into our beautification projects and when one person or persons can do this harm, it causes serious angst!

Please, if anyone saw anyone or anything suspicious - at any hour - milling around this Fountain area in the last 24 hours, please let me hear from you. We know this spray had to be applied sometime between Monday 1PM and today when we found it at 4PM. We have filed a Police Report and will be pressing charges if the culprit(s) can be caught. Thank you for your vigilance and support…this will NOT deter our continued plans for beautification throughout Snell Isle!

Thank you Volunteers - Coffee Pot Bayou Cleanup

Thanks to all our wonderful volunteers who worked so very hard on the Coffee Pot Bayou cleanup. The results are awesome. We really, really appreciate all that you did.

To help us first with the prep work, the City provided three very skilled men and two machines to remove the big trees and vines from the easement area. They did a phenomenal job and the volume removed is impressive.

Thanks to our 50+ volunteers who did a super cleanup job. Lakewood, Osceola, Northshore School, Shorecrest, Old NE, Snell Isle, St Thomas Church, Coffee Pot Drive homeowners and the Boy Scouts. The volunteers from Scout troop 219 and the Shorecrest School Science Club were heroes. The college students from Eckerd did a great job in clearing the small debris from the just cleared area. Northshore School, the honor student from Seminole HS and some local residents all worked hard. Wanda got cleaned out twice and the dumpster was a godsend for lots of little stuff. Also, thanks to KPB who provided great support with tools and shirts and food cards from Chick-Fil-A. We had a great group of volunteers. That’s how the neighborhood comes together. Thank you.
