The city of Largo is located in Pinellas County on Florida's Gulf Coast. Part of the Tampa Bay area, the city is situated about 4 miles south of Clearwater, 17 miles northwest of St. Petersburg, and 23 miles west of Tampa.
The Largo Central Railroad (LCRR) is an organization founded in 1991 and dedicated to the hobby of live steam and large-scale model railroading. The organization regularly holds public runs and currently has over a mile of track running through beautifully landscaped Largo Central Park. Pinellas Trail was conceived as a safe place to enjoy bicycle riding, strolling or jogging. The first five-mile section opened connecting Taylor Park in Largo to Seminole Park in Seminole opened in 1990. The dream is now a full reality, with a 34-mile long Pinellas Trail offering county residents and visitors a unique opportunity to enjoy the outdoors in a variety of ways. Culture and the performing arts are alive in Largo at the Largo Cultural Center. The Center, overlooking beautiful Largo Central Park, is one of the area's principal cultural and entertainment facilities, hosting scores of local, national, and international headliners each year. The Florida Botanical Gardens at Largo's Pinewood Cultural Park offers a unique blend of Florida native plants and beautiful exotic tropicals. Largo's Gulf Coast Museum of Art includes nine permanent collections and changing exhibition galleries featuring regional artwork and fine crafts.
