Spanish-American War Memorial Park Playground Dedication was held on May 9, 2015. Thanks to the perseverance of the Port Tampa City Woman’s Club, irrigation improvements have been made, landscaping, and additional playground equipment has been installed. The Club has plans for refurbishing the park’s marker, replacing damaged bollards, and shaded seating in the new portion of the park on Prescott Street.
Gazebo – A shout-out to all the organizations that stepped up to the plate, donated materials and money, provided skilled laborers, and gave their time and resources to replace the 70-something Spanish-American War Memorial Park gazebo. Special thanks to the Rough Riders organization for taking charge of this project and to the Port Tampa City Woman’s Club for their perseverance in getting us a beautiful gazebo that was dedicated on December 14, 2013.
