Osprey, Florida is located in Sarasota County Florida. It is just south of Sarasota in what’s referred to as “unincorporated” Sarasota County.
Osprey is home to Historic Spanish Point, a 30-acre (12 ha) museum and environmental complex that includes a prehistoric shell mound, a turn-of-the-century pioneer homestead museum, a citrus packing house, chapel, boatyard, gardens and nature trails. Osprey is the mailing address for Oscar Scherer State Park and the new Scherer Thaxton Preserve, two of the few protected areas maintaining habitat for the threatened Florida scrub jay. Osprey is also the location of the Blackburn Point Bridge, a one-lane bridge over the Intracoastal Waterway that is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
