I love this park. This is Tampa's main downtown park right on the water. There is always something to do here. Don't forget to come on the first Thursday of the month for rock the park at 6pm and on every Sunday, yoga in the park at the same time :)

This is a very nice waterfront park for city events. The police presence made me feel safe during the macaroni and cheese fest. Some how they got this very vocally intimidating group to dissipate in time for the festival. I wasn't in the mood to listen to their hateful preaching. I just wanted to enjoy the fest with my family which I did. Thank you and hats off to the city police of Tampa.

Curtis Hixon Park serves as an awesome go-to waterfront venue for Downtown Tampa which is conveniently located close to home for many Tampa Downtown Residents. Curtis Hixon Park is a perfect venue for Oktoberfest, Gasparilla music fest, St Patrick's Day, music festivals, concerts, art shows, ice skating, and countless other events!

I can't believe that I'm giving a park a three star review but to me, this park isn't really anything special. The two main issues for me is the fact that there is little to no shade, and that the park isn't very natural. What I mean by "natural" is that the park doesn't have much foliage or wildlife. This park is pretty centrally located so it's good for festivals and other kinds of events. It have a nice view of Hillsborough River, but this part of Hillsborough River is not the prettiest to look at. I guess the best times to go to this park would be for a walk when it's either cloudy or cold out, or if there's some type of event going on, but don't go out of the way to come here.

Most great cities have huge open communal multi purpose spaces. Tampa aspires to create such a space with Waterfront Park. This is part of a more ambitious Downtown revitalization project: Riverwalk. Construction is ongoing. I was blown away by the wide open grassy area that people just sort of graze on a lazy Sunday. The Tampa Museum of Art anchors Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park, with an interactive children playground and a dog walk. The wide inviting space offers a gathering spot for people to congregate. There doesn’t need to be an actual reason to go here, but once you are there this could be the jump of point for other fun things. Wish my city had this.

Love the space. Good memories with my dog. Not a fan of dog park. Crazy untrained humans with their misbehaved pitbulls. Steer clear even if your dog is trained because theirs ain't!
