Cotanchobee Fort Brooke Park

The Cotanchobee Fort Brooke Park is a 4.5 acre waterfront park located along the Garrison Channel in downtown Tampa. Situated between the Amalie Stadium and the scenic Hillsborough River, this spectacular play area is fun for all ages from their water splash playground full of fun fountains for the children to the private park pier for adults. Near the pier your group will be able to use the canoe and kayak launch, take a dip in the water, or just soak up some sun and scenery from the shore. You will also have the chance to use any of the many beautiful trails throughout the park to walk, jog, or roller blade the day away.
