Best Of 2019

Best New Park: Julian B. Lane Riverfront Park

Best New Park

Julian B. Lane Riverfront Park

Julian B. Lane technically opened last year, but it started to find an identity in 2019. Events typically held downriver at Curtis Hixon Park started migrating there, and JBL hosts the 50th Gasparilla Arts Festival this winter. The first time I visited, I was really taken by the picturesque green space’s beauty, its plethora of public art and its view of the downtown Tampa skyline. Add a sunset into the equation, and what you have is something truly stunning.
