Tampa always has something going on and Curtis Hixon Park is a hot spot! From free concerts, food truck rallies, seasonal events and more, it is hard to get bored! more »
The waterfront park was a nice stop along the riverwalk. Great place where events are held. Decently busy, nice place to sit down and relax and just enjoy the waterfront views or take part in... more »
Love this park, really scenic and positive vibes that are much needed in an industrial area! At night, the fountains light up with LED lights! There are tons of inspirational/motivational quotes carved into the brick walkway. Overall, amazing place with great energy!
Good place to hang out with family. If you have kids they are going to love water fountains. For adults it is a relaxing place. You could walk around or use Scooters to enjoy
