Wildflower, hawks, deer snakes, frogs, and an occasional bobcat
bring on back to nature at Flatwoods Park. Over 5,400 acres of mostly
pine flatwoods and cypress swamps breath a calming sigh of relief
from Tampa's developed landscape. Hidden remnants of the past await
discovery on the hiking trails in the park.
Flatwoods Park is best known for its seven-mile paved Look Road,
a popular shared-use trail. The Morris Bridge Wellfield is located
within the park. Wellhouses can be observed along the trail. A two-mile
paved extension connects Bruce B. Downs Boulevard with Loop Road.
Flatwoods Park Trail is paved one-mile connection between Morris
Bridge Road and Loop Road.
