Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park reviews
Walked by the park during my exercise on night one in Tampa. Bit of people watching, skate boarders, folks doing yoga etc. Right by the river.

After going to the Tampa Museum of Art we walked by the river. The walkway was wide and there were many signs and sculptures of famous people along the way. Also a nice playground.

We loved the downtown experience and paths. There is so much to do and see, I would recommend taking an entire day to explore and check everything out. The fountain was really neat to see at night time and all the places we walked felt very safe and well maintained. Friendly for all ages and handicap accessible throughout. The city is very beautiful when it's all lit up at night! Many people were biking, roller skating, on scooters, and everyone was polite as they went by. There are many different places to park but they all have meters or if you choose a lot paying there. Highly recommend visiting.
This is a beautiful riverside park that comes alive in the evening with spectacular lighted trees and interactive water features. This park walkway is nice and wide and has several places to sit and take in the scenery on the land and in the water. There are public restrooms as well as some restaurants along the way if you want a snack or drink.
