River Board contributes to Julian B Lane Park redevelopment

JBLane Park mapJulian B Lane Park is 23 acres located across the Hillsborough River from Downtown Tampa and is generally considered an underutilized property. Tampa has hired Civitas, a consulting company, to engage the community and create a plan for the redevelopment of the park.

There are opportunities to capitalize on this asset, making the park more popular and appealing. In May, the River Board was invited to a meeting with City of Tampa staff and their consultant to discuss preliminary ideas for the redevelopment of Julian B Lane Park. Additional coordination between the project team and the River Board is expected later this year. This project is expected to conclude this Fall, with construction projected for 2016.
