Margaritas will run from $4 to $8. Outside food, drinks, coolers, tents, umbrellas and pets are not allowed. This park is one of nicest parks in Tampa. With an interactive playground, wide open flat grass play area, a view of the University of Tampa, and cooling water fountains, this is a great place to relax on a Thursday evening or any evening! Parking is available at the Curtis Hixon parking garage or at nearby public parking lots. On street parking is free in Tampa after 6pm, so you don’t have to place any quarters into the meters! If you’re lucky, you can get a parking spot in front of Five Guys Hamburgers right across the street from the Park at the corner of Ashley and Polk. The good thing about this park is that is centrally located in Tampa. Just a 15 minute drive from MacDill AFB and about 20 to 30 minutes from Brandon, FishHawk Ranch, New Tampa, Clearwater and St. Pete.
