Glazer Children's Museum enjoys a prime location on the Hillsborough River

The Glazer Children's Museum is well under construction and on track to open in 2010. Its riverfront location, just beside the soon to open Tampa Museum of Art, is part of a transformation of the area between the Hillsborough River and Ashley Drive. The 53,000 square foot facility will provide an opportunity for children and all the adults in the lives to play and learn in new, creative and totally fun and unexpected ways. This afternoon's bright blue skies, puffy white clouds and warm weather made it an ideal day to enjoy some leisurely boating on the bay and river. This view, from Plant Park, provides the perfect vantage point to watch progress on the building of the new museums, addition to the Riverwalk and restoration of Kiley Park as the entire riverfront is remade to the city's plan for a Cultural Arts District in Tampa's downtown.


  1. What a wonderful idea and wonderful site! Methinks the Tampa city fathers got some sense!

    Great photo, too!

  2. Great colouring, a sort of art deco feel to the shot
