John B. Sargeant, Sr. Memorial Park, 12856 U.S. Highway 301 North, is best known for boating access to the Hillsborough River. Downriver, the Hillsborough River State Canoe Trail winds through a jungle of hardwood trees, lilies and birds. Upstream, the river widens to flow through the broad hardwood swamp known as the Seventeen Runs. In 1989, Flint Creek Park was renamed in memory of John B. Sargeant, Sr., who served as a member of the Hillsborough River Basin Board of the Southwest Florida Water Management District. Park activities and features include a small boat ramp, picnicking, boardwalk, and fishing.
