1. Wouldn't it be great for Lowry Park Zoo to expand all the way to the river. This require part of Boulevard to be closed. I don't think it would cause major problems because of the many alternate routes. The seems to be busting at the seams as is.
2. Wouldn't it be great if the Tower Park off Bird and Florida we're turned into a Botanical and/or Formal Garden as once proposed.
3. The Kmart plaza across from the Tower Park would be prime for redevelopement.
I know this is wishful and probably unlikely, but the potential for something interesting and unique is there. I can picture people seeing part of Tampa by boat. From the Aquarium or other downtown points of interest they could voyage upstream to the Zoo and Gardens. In addition these developments could help transform this whole somewhat blighted area.
