Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park is the crown jewel of the city’s urban parks and will ultimately be the centerpiece of the Tampa Riverwalk. Designed by the New York-based landscape architect Thomas Balsley, the park integrates the Riverwalk with the Glazer Children’s Museum, the Tampa Museum of Art and downtown.
Overlooking the Hillsborough River, the park with its sloping great lawn features two fountains, a children’s playground, public boat docks, a dog park, seat terraces, a pavilion and café. Come back out Sunday for the “Gospel / Jazz Sunday” portion of the 2013 Street Festival at this place.
