Tampa Riverwalk is a 2.6-mile-long (4.2 km) open space and pedestrian trail development along the Hillsborough River in Tampa, Florida. The downtown Tampa portion runs alongside the Tampa Arts District and allows access to Curtis Hixon Park, MacDill Park, Tampa Museum of Art, Glazer Children's Museum, Rivergate Tower, and adjacent atrium containing the Florida Museum of Photographic Arts. The Riverwalk extends along most of the downtown Tampa waterfront from near the Channelside District west to the Tampa Convention Center and north up the east bank of the Hillsborough River to Water Works Park in Tampa Heights, forming a continuous path connecting multiple parks, attractions, public spaces, and hotels. According to the city, the purpose of the Riverwalk is to "enhance the image of Tampa as a beautiful and unique destination" and highlight Tampa's waterfront.Before you head to Tampa, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Tampa journey planning website, to make sure you see all that Tampa has to offer, including Tampa Riverwalk.

Tampa Riverwalk reviews
just simply a must do -- nuff said -- a great way to be outside and take in the energy of downtown!! more »
Great addition to Tampa. The walk is very pretty and the weather the evening we went could not have been better. The buildings had very pretty lights. There were great restaurants and bars at points..... more »
A fantastic way to take in the city! Lots of places to stop, explore, eat & drink. Perfect for running or a stroll along the water.
Good location to walk, jog or run. Located right by downtown and the University of Tampa.
