Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park attracts over one million people annually to its special events. It’s a place to meet and enjoy Tampa’s waterfront. Bring your children to splash through the water features or take your dog for a trip to the dog park.
Great and Sloped Lawn
The perfect urban open space for festivals and concerts, Curtis Hixon Waterfront park has a great lawn with sloped and terraced edges for optimal viewing from a distance. There is ample space for sports or outdoor yoga classes, too.
It's no secret why Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park is so popular with the kids: two splash pads offering hours of fun and a great way to cool off.
The playground offers a children’s play area with equipment for children ages 2 to 12 years old. Shaded play structures and seating areas will allow children and parents to enjoy the park even on hot summer days.
