West River Redevelopment

A Community Vision

     The West River neighborhood includes approximately 150 acres of land along the western banks of the Hillsborough River and spans from Downtown Tampa to Tampa Heights. Community access to the river for recreational use has been one of the City of Tampa's principal objectives over the past decade. The Hillsborough River, approximately 300 feet in width, serves as a recreational waterway where families from neighborhoods at all income levels can enjoy. The Hillsborough River provides an excellent inland waterway amenity for the City of Tampa and more specifically, thecommunities, residents, and businesses located along much of its length.
