The Creative District
The city's emerging Creative District currently centers on the area between the 5600 and 5800 blocks north of Park Boulevard, extending westward to incorporate the Pinellas Park Senior Center, the historic City Auditorium, and the iconic Park Station building housing the Pinellas Park Gateway Chamber of Commerce, the Pinellas Park Art Society, the Pinellas Park Historical Society, Roe's Deli, and a suite of meeting and classrooms. This area, the historic commercial core of the city and part of the Community Redevelopment Area, has long been envisioned as an activity center where residents can access a wide variety of cultural, recreational, and entertainment amenities within a compact area that is easily accessible by pedestrians and bicyclists.
A concentration of creative businesses is now emerging in the 5600 and 5700 Blocks of Park Boulevard, where several storefronts and residential parcels were acquired by the City of Pinellas Park in 2013. The 5600 Block now hosts artist studios and galleries at 5609 and 5681 Park Boulevard, with additional art space at 5625 Park Boulevard.
In January 2016, the Studios at 5663, a suite of 10 affordable artist studios with a shared gallery, began leasing. Interested artists can find additional information by visiting the Studios at 5663 webpage.
