Walking Tours

Please join us for East Tampa Walking Tours!

Join us for upcoming East Tampa Walking Tours that will take place on Saturday mornings from 10AM - Noon on January 30, February 13, 20 and 27.

The Walking Tours will be held in neighborhoods throughout the East Tampa CRA. The purpose of these tours is to learn first hand from the residents about the needs and vision for their neighborhoods. 

What is a Walking Tour?

  • About a 2.5 mile walk in the neighborhood, focusing on the area

  • We will go slow and walk and talk together to learn from you.

  • We will be outdoors, but will still wear masks and be COVID safe.

  • We will have water bottles and a safety vest for you.

  • Members of the East Tampa Community Advisory Committee and Neighborhood Associations will be participating.

  • We appreciate your participation!

When & Where?

As part of the East Tampa Plan, we are conducting neighborhood walking tours on Saturday mornings from 10AM - Noon. We have successfully completed walking tours in College Hill/Belmont Heights, Jackson Heights, East Tampa, East Tampa Business & Civic and Rainbow Heights, Northview Hills, Eastner Heights, Highland Pines and Grant Park (images below) and are learning more about the Parks, Streets, Housing and Businesses and.  We are getting good input on both Challenges and Opportunities and we want to build your input into the CRA Strategic Action Plan. 


Please join us on March 6th on our last tours!

Plan to arrive a few minutes before 10AM.  We want to depart on-time and return on-time at Noon.
