Description

The new eight acre Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park features a unique urban design, sustainable construction, and operational features including reclaimed water for irrigation and LED lighting. Park amenities include the Great Lawn with flexible perimeter seating to accommodate a wide range of programming and performances, a dog run, a kiosk with restrooms, and a Pavilion building with restrooms, park offices, and space for a future vendor. There are also two interactive fountains: the Louver fountain is located on the east side of the park along Ashley Drive and the Mist Fountain is located on the west side the park along the Riverwalk. The fountains were made possible through a donation from the F.E. Lykes Foundation. The park's new playground features an interactive NEOS 360 Ring, which combines video games with aerobic exercise and is the first of its kind in the South East United States. The NEOS 360 Ring was donated by the Friends of Tampa Recreation, Inc.
