Jay B. Starkey Wilderness Park

10500 Wilderness Park Blvd., New Port Richey, Florida 34655 USA

“One of the largest undeveloped tract of land in florida”

The Starkey Wilderness Preserve is one of the largest undeveloped tracts in Pasco County and protects sensitive environmental areas in the fast-growing western portion of Pasco County. The preserve consists of three tracts: Jay B. Starkey Wilderness Park Serenova Tract Anclote River Ranch Tract The preserve is the culmination of foresight and cooperative spirit of individuals and governmental agencies working to carry forth “one man’s dream.” The park is named after Jay B. Starkey, Sr., who purchased the land in 1937 and then developed a cattle ranch and timber operation. In 1975, Mr. Starkey donated several hundred acres to the District, initiating the concept of permanently protecting the land and its resources for future generations.
