Most Active Ideas
»The riverfront can definitely support more than one beer garden. Each has its own character. Visit Germany
»I like the idea of connecting to Curtis Hixon via pedestrian bridge. Small cafe's food carts, bike rental, etc.
»This is a good idea. Anything this city can do to increase foot traffic in and around the city it vital, Live, Work, Play
»We have some very talented high school swimmer that could benefit from these pools. Not only could the high school practice there but state championships and other large events are held in Orlando. It would be great to host some of these and bring people to Tampa
»It would be great to see this proposed loop encompass some of the great restaurants and hot spots that have emerged in Seminole Heights as well. Imagine how great it could be if we got the majority of these places connected and how much safer our roads would be at night on the weekends! I think Linda E1 is on the right track!
»Great idea, plus I would love to see a world class aquatic facility! Imagine swimming laps and taking in views of downtown during your lunch break!
»I think more cops would only add to the perception of this area as being unsafe. It would be nice to have more parks and rec. staff on site. But if we must have cops it would be nice to see them on foot or on bicycles instead of in their patrol cars or on horses.
»Thanks for posting these old pictures! Sometimes it is good to see what the original vision of a place was in order to inform future designs.
»Wish there was a dislike button...river should remain public as much as possible...let the west bank be different, complement, the east bank...more commercial and higher density on one side, lower density and community amenities on the other.yes, some mistakes were made when planning/designing Blake, but it is there and it is not going to be moved. The $10-20 M (if sold for that) would be eaten up for a school with Blake's size and programming (performing and creative arts with working theater, art studios, photography labs, etc.) and planning for growth, which has to be taken into account should the area be redeveloped and a higher density residential population is realized.
»Agree about completing the Riverfront Greenway from Julian B. Lane Riverfront Park up to at least Rick's; I would like to seek it go up to the tiny stretch of park already in place just to the north of the Columbus Drive bridge, which has already had its shoreline restore. Rick's and the rest of the owners of that paved area on the river need to come up with a plan to remove that paved area from the river's edge...the City should step up to the plate with an offer to swap some of the paved area in the Water Department's facility for the riverfront paved area, maintaining their boat docks while integrating a pedestrian and bike friendly thoroughfare.
