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.
