Located in northeast St. Petersburg, Americana Cove
has a history dating back to 1961 when the first mobile or manufactured homes were erected on the site at 7201 North First street. Today some 758 lots are occupied or available, with some one fourth of them located on canals or small lakes that lead to Riviera Bay and then to Tampa Bay. The original homes were placed at an angle on the lots to avoid the 'bowling alley' look of many mobile home parks.
The resident owned community is well located. Seventy two blocks north of downtown St. Petersburg, it is 12 miles from Tampa International Airport or the Clearwater-St. Petersburg airport, 15 or 20 miles to the gulf beaches, 25 miles to Busch Gardens, and 85 miles to Disney World.
Most areas of the park are relatively quiet, as it is located four or eight blocks from busy Fourth and Ninth streets. Regular homes, apartments, and the Mangrove Bay Golf Course are on the perimeter of Americana Cove
The park has a 24-hour guarded entrance.
The clubhouse is used daily by 27 different activity groups and has a heated swimming pool. Expanded in 1986 and again in 1993, the clubhouse has a fitness center, billiards room, and a modern kitchen. Activities include regular luncheons and dinners, bingo, and a Sunday evening church service for all denominations. Public buses stop on First Street just outside the main entrance. Shuffleboard courts are located between the clubhouse and the park business office. The clubhouse is also available for city and other elections.
