The Tampa Museum of Art’s surrounding site will be redefined to create new riverfront public terraces and landscapes. A new gateway plaza is introduced on Cass Street that frames the entrance to Curtis Hixon Park. The plaza is bookended by large and small dog parks on both sides. As a continuation of Tampa’s Riverwalk, a sloped walk will bring pedestrians down to the river edge from the ground floor level. An outdoor amphitheater outside the Museum’s auditorium will serve as a shaded place for people to gather. With new native planting and shade trees, the Museum’s ground floor terrace will be accessible from Riverwalk. The goal of the landscape enhancement is to shape a seamless and integrated public experience around the Museum and the park.
