Huge park on the water where the city has many events. Octoberfest was a blast. The grass is cut low and soft. Not the usual Florida blade grass.

Sitting and enjoying the sun is very enjoyable near the river. Close to the street the traffic noise is very loud. Very colorful at night as they light up the water spouts with differing colors.

As a kid this used to house one of Tampa's premiere concert halls. Now it's a park with out door concerts, movies and festivals. Fun for kids of all ages

This is one of my favorite place to go hang out in Tampa, pet friendly, they have a dog park, there’s always something going on here, you will not be bored. The view is beautiful. People are always friendly. Great spot to relax.

I love this park! Festivals and concerts are held here. Pet and kid friendly. Along the riverwalk. Great place to chill out, take photos, and do some yoga

Wonderful views, variety of restaurants and bars in the area and very easy access from all over Tampa Bay. What's not to like?

A mini water-feature park, swing sets, beautiful walkways to run or bike. Views of the city and the University, it really is a great place to spend a morning, afternoon or entire day. There is also free yoga here on the weekends!

This year the ice rink was close to the river which made the view even better. My kids wait every year for the rink to open and never want to leave once we are there. It has been a great outdoor activity during the holidays.
