Tampa’s Water Works Park Project Begins
City council members last week approved the use of $6.5 million in Community Investment Tax funds — the bulk of the planned $7.8 million renovation. When it’s finished next year, the park will have boat docks, a canoe launch, a playground and dog run.
It will be the northern end of the 2.4-mile Tampa Riverwalk.
It will also be home to Ulele, the Gonzmart family’s newest Tampa restaurant, which is under construction in the 100-year-old water works building under a long-term lease with the city.
