12507 Cortez Road West, Cortez, FL 34215
( We're Located at the Foot of The Cortez Bridge )
Cortez Park is perfectly located right on the Intracoastal Waterway on Sarasota Bay nestled between Tampa and Sarasota. Sarasota is the melting pot of art, culture, world class entertainment, attractions and shopping. Our park rests on the west side of Cortez, a small historic (but still working) fishing village. Right across the bridge lies Anna Maria Islandís city of Bradenton Beach. We challenge you to visit the Gulf Coast of Florida and find a more relaxed, yet convenient location. We are close to shopping malls and hospitals. Our historic park in the village of Cortez, however, is a nostalgic look back in time when people and things moved slower.
