Design concepts are now ready for public input. Please come to voice your thoughts on the park design and $900K investment.
Herman Massey Park sits on the northwest corner of Tyler and Franklin Streets right in the middle of the Downtown River Arts Neighborhood.
As part of DRANA's 2017 priorities, the association facilitated surveys to determine park needs from the community. Overwhelmingly, public safety was identified as the community's priority and DRANA approached the City of Tampa's Community Redevelopment Area for park improvements. As a result, upward of $900,000 has been committed to the park redesign and revitalization.
During May community feedback sessions last year, the City's Parks and Recreation department introduced the Herman Massey Park improvement project and allowed the community to provide additional insights on park needs.
The mission of our association is to represent, prioritize and facilitate the needs of Tampa’s downtown residents and businesses. We aim to accelerate and improve the community, its standard of living, and business opportunities through partnerships with the City of Tampa, the downtown Community Redevelopment Area (CRA), and downtown partners.
Connect with you neighborhood for change. Join DRANA today to lend your voice for the greater good of the community. DRANA is recognized by the City of Tampa as the official organization representing the collective interests of our neighborhood. The more voices we have, the louder we will be heard.
