Join Mayor Bob Buckhorn on Saturday, June 11th as we open Cass Street’s new two-way bike track (the first two-way back track in the state of Florida!) and the newest segment of The Tampa Riverwalk! Friends of the Riverwalk will also unveil their new and improved surreys for use during the ride!
The festivities will start in Perry Harvey, Sr. Park and end on the Tampa Riverwalk. See below for the timeline of activities.
