Inspirock Rating:
4.5/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web
The new, eight-acre Curtis Hixon park sits on the banks of the Hillsborough River in downtown Tampa. Amenities include the Great Lawn with flexible perimeter seating to accommodate a wide range of programming and performances, a dog run, trails, a kiosk with restrooms and a Pavilion building with restrooms.

There are two interactive fountains, or spraygrounds: the Louver Fountain on the east side of the park along Ashley Drive and the Mist Fountain on the west side the park along the Riverwalk. 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 southeast United States.

A section of the Riverwalk runs through the park connecting the David Straz Performing Arts Center to the Glazer Children's Museum and the Tampa Museum of Art.

  • This is the park on the water in front of the Tampa Museum of Art. The museum building is dramatic overlooking the park. The park is very nice.....part of making Tampa attractive. 
  • I attended Wanderlust 108 that took place at this park. What a great spot! Open and clean and just really well laid out. A beautiful park in the midst of downtown Tampa. 
  • Great place for concerts. Nice place to ride your bike or just hang out. Close to lots of restaurants and bars or a walk down by the river walk.
