I absolutely love strolling or roller blading along Tampa’s Downtown Riverwalk. This beautiful pathway links you to a plethora of attractions and businesses in our city. I could easily spend an entire day exploring the complete stretch, from the north end to the south, stopping at various establishments along the way.
Come to a meeting. Join a committee. We look forward to hearing how we can help you shape Tampa’s future!
