VIDEO: A Peek at the Area's New Nature Park

The park, which is east of Interstate 75 and south of Bruce B. Downs Boulevard, opened on Monday.

Editor's note: Want to check out New Tampa's brand new nature park before you make the drive over from Lutz? This video from our sister site in New Tampa points out the highlights.

Here's the scoop:

The City of Tampa held a grand opening ceremony this week for a 122-acre expanse of greenery for walking, hiking and biking.

New Tampa Nature Park connects to Hillsborough County’s Flatwoods Park trail system. It includes two elevated boardwalks, a play area, zip line and picnic areas.

The late developer Ken Good first conceived of a nature park on the site in the 1980s, but the property languished for years.

Although a reporter had no such luck, visitors may be able to spy— if observant, quiet  and lucky— lots of wildlife including deer, wild hogs, alligators, osprey and wild turkey.

The address for New Tampa Nature Park is 17001 Dona Michelle Drive.
