What’s New Along the Selmon Greenway?

The Selmon Greenway is a pedestrian-friendly, urban green path that runs through downtown Tampa. The Greenway connects several popular neighborhoods of Tampa, including Ybor City, Channelside, and the up-and-coming Water Street with the Riverwalk. With connections to all these parts of Tampa, there are endless things to do while enjoying the Greenway.

Water Street is Booming

Recently, there has been a lot of talk about the future of Water Street. Just walking distance from the Greenway, the $3.5 billion downtown-waterfront project offers 56 acres of fun and endless activities for everyone. So whether you are looking to dine-in, shop, or enjoy a refreshing drink with friends, you will find something you’ll love.

Some unique new additions include Small Giant Bar & Restaurant, an exciting neighborhood place to get unique pizza, beverages, and beyond. The Pearl entices with an oyster room, restaurant, and eclectic tavern décor.

In Sparkman Wharf, the Hampton Chocolate Factory, a luxury chocolate store, and Fit Bowl, an acai/superfood bowl and smoothie shop, are now open to satisfy your tastebuds. They are the perfect treat after any long bike ride or walk along the Greenway.

If you are in need of a caffeine fix after a good workout, Shortwave Coffee is coming soon to Sparkman Wharf. With an extensive menu of lattes, cold brews, and teas, you will be left feeling energized and satisfied.
