Mayor Iorio Dedicates Riverwalk South Plaza

Mayor Pam Iorio joined Hillsborough County Commissioner Rose Ferlita, City Council Chairman Thomas Scott, Friends of the Riverwalk, and others for the official dedication of the Tampa Riverwalk South Plaza.

“Our city has so many wonderful things, but one thing it lacks is connectivity,” she said, adding, “One day you’ll be able to walk from the Channel District all the way to Tampa Heights.”

After cutting the ribbon, the Mayor walked with the crowd down the Riverwalk, the Blake High School marching band leading the way. The procession stopped in front of the Tampa Bay History Center before the Mayor invited everyone to enjoy complimentary refreshments at the Columbia Café.

Once completed, the 2.2 mile Riverwalk will link the Channel District and the Tampa Bay History Center to other cultural destinations located along the Hillsborough River.
