  10/6/11 City of Tampa awarded Riverwalk Dock Construction Grant
  The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission has awarded the City of Tampa a $398,000 grant to build floating docks behind the Tampa Bay History Center and Columbia Café in Garrison Channel. Construction calls for a walkway off the Riverwalk directly behind the Tampa Bay History Center just west of the Beneficial Drive Bridge. The walkway will connect to a 75-foot gangway leading to a docking structure that parallels the shoreline. Docking fees will be a pay-as-you-go system similar to the public docks behind the Tampa Convention Center. The docks will accommodate eight to nine boat tie ups and also serve as a water taxi stop.
