Trout Creek park Closed For Improvements
« on: December 09, 2007, 05:39:40 PM »
Trout Creek Park, Wilderness Park
12550 Morris Bridge Road Tampa, Florida 22592

Please know this **may** affect the Trout Creek Mountain Bike trails.

Press Release below

Hillsborough County’s Trout Creek Park will be closed Dec. 10 – 14 for repairs and improvements to the facility located at 12550 Morris Bridge Road.

Phase I of the project is to repave the existing parking lot and maintenance drive, plus the addition of ADA compliant sidewalks to the park. The contract work is being completed by George G. Solar and Co. and the cost of the project is $110,000. The money is coming from the County’s R3M program, a funding source that provides for the repair, remodeling, replacement and maintenance of existing facilities.

A second phase of the project to repave and reseal the main park drive is scheduled for spring 2008.
Trout Creek Park is part of the Wilderness Park system operated by the Hillsborough County Parks, Recreation and Conservation Department which provides access to 17,000 acres in NE Hillsborough County. Activities at Trout Creek include canoing, fishing, off-road bicycling, picnicking, and access to nature trails and a boardwalk overlooking the Hillsborough River.
