City of Tampa to Open Parks & Rec Facilities Tomorrow

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

In an effort to provide an alternate location for Tampa residents, including kids and seniors, to go because of closures due to the storm, the City of Tampa will open all Recreation facilities from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday, October 7th  free of charge.

“By providing a location for families to take their loved ones we can ensure that both kids and adults alike will have a fun filled day in an safe environment while we wait out this storm,” said Mayor Bob Buckhorn. “ Many parents are unable to find adequate and reasonably priced childcare on short notice so the City is there to fill that need.”

“Our thoughts and prayers are with those in the path of the storm across the state.”

*Recreation facilities will include Barksdale Active Adult Center

*In an effort to increase convenience for families we will also be providing a light meal.
