The Cotanchobee Fort Brooke Park is located in downtown Tampa adjacent to the River Walk. Small park with a children's playground, good spot for coffee and shade. Beware of the gators.

This park is beautiful. We snorkeled, toured and sampled tequila, had lunch with live music. I even accidentally left my camera behind and it was still there an hour later. Snorkeling is beautiful can tropical fish are everywhere
