The new, eight-acre Curtis Hixon park sits on the banks of the Hillsborough River in downtown Tampa. Amenities  include the Great Lawn with flexible perimeter seating to accommodate a wide range of programming and performances, a dog run, trails, a kiosk with restrooms and a Pavilion building with restrooms.

There are two interactive fountains, or spraygrounds: the Louver Fountain on the east side of the park along Ashley Drive and the Mist Fountain on the west side the park along the Riverwalk. The park's new playground features an interactive NEOS 360 Ring, which combines video games with aerobic exercise and is the first of its kind in the southeast United States.

A section of the Riverwalk runs through the park connecting the David Straz Performing Arts Center to the Glazer Children's Museum and the Tampa Museum of Art.
