Waterfront Park Opens in Tampa

A new 8-acre park has opened on the waterfront of downtown Tampa, Florida, the first of three downtown projects opening downtown this year.

The park was 18-months in the works, and local officials are hopeful that it will draw more people to the downtown area.

"The 8-acre park, designed by Thomas Balsley and Associates of New York, is the first of three projects debuting downtown this year. It features two interactive fountains, a children's playground, terraced lawn, dog run, bathrooms and a revitalized portion of the Riverwalk.

Next up is the Tampa Museum of Art, opening Feb. 6, and then the Glazer Children's Museum in late summer."
