THE TRADITION CONTINUES!
This year, we've taken precautions to ensure social distancing. The only in-person Thanksgiving run/walk in Tampa Bay, this event may also be run or walked virtually! Haven't signed up? You'll want to! Click here.
Construction around both the park office building and the 500m restroom building parking area will be under way for three weeks or so, weather permitting, beginning Oct. 5 (the three-week period ends Oct. 26). ADA-compliant parking pads are being added at both facilities.
