North Pointe is largely residential neighborhood located in the Lake Magdalene area of Tampa Bay. Its location west of Interstate 275 and Florida Avenue, south of Bearss Avenue, and north of Fletcher Avenue provides quick access to many of the major venues throughout the region.
Simply driving down Fletcher Avenue a few miles opens up numerous options.

Many area residents show a great deal of support for the local college team, the Bulls. It is common to see pride for the team throughout the area on cars, in business windows, and on signs.
Further down Fletcher Avenue is Lettuce Lake Park, a popular site that provides some of the best recreation in the area. Inside of the park is Hillsborough River, one of the largest in the region. This river is home to hundreds of large alligators, numerous species of birds, countless turtles, and other types of wildlife. The river is also a popular destination for kayaking, canoeing, and boating. It is common to see a constant flow of water traffic in the area every day.
Lettuce Lake Park is also the best place in the area for anyone who enjoys a little land exercise. Throughout the large park are numerous long trails perfect for hikers, cyclists, and runners. The well-covered park also provides protection against the intense Florida sun, making it a wonderful place to run regardless of the time of day. The area also has many covered picnic areas as well as a large playground popular with children.
