Saint Petersburg Things to Do: 121 reviews and 175 photos


<a href='' target=newwindow>Derby Lane.</a>T. L. Weaver, a lumber entrepreneur expanded his timberland holdings and lumber operations to St. Petersburg, Florida during the land boom of the 1920s.
He sold one pine tract to a group of local businessmen who constructed a greyhound track. Unable to pay their outstanding balance, they gave the track to Weaver's lumber company. It has been with the Weaver family ever since.
A greyhound kennel compound built in 1990 is surrounded by native plants and ponds. These wetlands are a preserve for many varieties of birds. It also houses our greyhound adoption kennels. Technological changes throughout the years have insured accuracy in every aspect of racing from odds computations to race draws.
