Tampa’s Water Works Park Project Begins

water_works_2013TAMPA — Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn joined city council members and members of the Gonzmart family to break ground this morning on Water Works Park just north of downtown.

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.
