Indian Mound Park

Managed by Sarasota County, Indian Mound Park is located in Englewood Florida and is named after the indigenous inhabitants of the land who settled in the area from 1000 BC to 1350 AD. The mound was the site of excavation including the surrounding habitation complex which resulted in the recovery of nearly 30,000 pottery shards. It was determined that the mound was not used primarily as a burial mound, but as a midden or an accumulation of refuse. There were many shells and animal bones uncovered along with the tools and personal items of the inhabitants.

Facility Information

The park now has a number of amenities for visitors. There are a couple docks that have boat access ramps to Lemon Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. Additionally, there are canoe and kayak launches. More inland, there are benches, picnic shelters, grills, restrooms, open spaces and trails to explore. Lastly, there are a number of historical/cultural resources with signage that explain certain points of interest that you can learn more about while in the park.
