Mayor Bob Buckhorn
Mayor Buckhorn officially opened the New Tampa Nature Park this morning. The 122-acre park features a nature walk, picnic areas, playgrounds, and yes - the City of Tampa's first zip line.

"From the Desk of Mayor Buckhorn" is designed to give citizens greater insight into the Mayor's Office. Every week, Mayor Buckhorn will offer a snippet of what he's currently working on.

"I’m looking forward to unveiling the InVision Tampa draft plan for downtown tomorrow. This plan was shaped by input from Tampa citizens who are genuinely committed to making this city a better place to live, work, and play. Our future is bright, and with the feedback from so many voices, we now have a road map to get us there."
