History: How did this park get its name?
Walsingham Park, one of the county’s newest parks, was named after the Walsingham Reservoir, which is located on the park property. The reservoir gets its name from Jesse Ancil Walsingham, a prominent early Pinellas County community leader, citrus grower and founding member of the Pinellas County Fair Association.
