4th Annual South Tampa Chamber Breakfast with the Mayor, Bob Buckhorn, who will present us with a State of the City address.

Tampa, Fl - Mayor Bob Buckhorn addresses the room with past and future plans. Buckhorn’s biggest accomplishment thus far is The Riverwalk. The Riverwalk, which now stretches close to 2.5 miles with more to come, has become a people magnet that has begun to connect businesses, public spaces, cultural destinations and new downtown residences. It has opened the water to the public and is now a real and significant uninterrupted walkway.

“For me, those parks – they’re not my legacy– but they are a gift to future generations. Those parks become a gathering point for a community. If you assume that downtown is everybody’s front door, it’s important that you have those gathering spaces where everybody from the community, regardless of their socioeconomic status, can feel comfortable coming. If you look at Curtis Hixon on any weekend and you go down there and see the plethora of events that we do, catering to everybody, that’s what parks do. They expose the urban core to people who may not come there but for the fact there is an organized event. It could be a jazz fest, it could be the African-American history festival, it could be anything. But those parks make a difference, said Bob Buckhorn.
