City of Tampa Awarded Riverwalk Dock Construction Grant

This notice is archived content and this information may no longer be accurate.
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.
