Activities The Southwest District is home to Tampa Bay, Florida's largest open-water estuary which encompasses nearly 400 square miles. We also enjoy a variety of scenic waterways including the Myakka River, Homosassa Springs, Hillsborough River, Manatee River, and portions of the Peace River. The best of our coastal landscapes have been set aside for protection as aquatic preserves. Cockroach Bay, Terra Ceia, Boca Ciega Bay and Pinellas County Aquatic Preserves are all situated in the Southwest District.
