After seeing the park pop up repeatedly in my Instagram feed on various Tampa-based travel and photography accounts, I decided I had to go find this apparent photographer's dream. I was more than slightly underwhelmed. Yes, the fountains are fun to watch, but other than that you really just have some open space with almost-dead grass and a decent view... More

Watch for the numerous offerings of festivals. The park is rather new and all the facilities reflect it! There are play areas for children and restrooms to make the visit comfortable. The park is on the river Walk!

When we were here there was a concert series going on during a food and music festival. The park is right on the river and easy to access from the riverwalk. It's a beautiful park with lots of open space. I had a great time taking in the views and the live music.

Love coming here for events or just for a stroll. Always well maintained and in the heart of Downtown Tampa. Sit on a bench or bring a blanket for a picnic.

The kids park had a lot of good reviews but I was a little disappointed when I got there. The playground is a little "abstract" and not your typical playground for kids. Not as fun as I had hoped. Not enough shade either for parents to sit or shade for kids to play in. The bathrooms were absolutely disgusting. The... More

This is a great park where the City of Tampa offers shows and activities. It is on the Riverwalk, which is a terrific tourist attraction. The Children's Museum and the Tampa Museum of Art both abut the park. When I take my grandchildren to the Children's Museum, when we leave, they insist on running through the water spouts/misters. There is... More

This is a beautiful area next to the water. We attended a St. Patricks Day festival here and there is a large playground for the kids to enjoy.

Find this lovel park along the Tampa Riverwalk. If you didn't know Tampa has a river walk then it's time to return for a visit. The waterfront is quite nice and the view of the Tampa University with all its minerets is something special
