Bayshore park's last days

TAMPA — A popular place for people to park their cars while taking a stroll or jog along Bayshore Boulevard is scheduled to close Sunday.

The city of Tampa's lease on the land for Bayshore Patriots Park is expiring, according to parks and recreation director Greg Bayor. A developer plans to build a condominium on the property, on Bayshore and Bay to Bay boulevards.

The city is working to find other parking locations in the area, Bayor said. Places being considered are near Pach's Place restaurant and under the Lee Roy Selmon Expressway.

Besides runners and walkers looking for parking, the Bayshore Patriots have used the area on Fridays since Sept. 11, 2001, in shows of support of U.S. troops.
