The Tampa Riverwalk was started in 1976 as a plank walkway in the Curtis Hixson Park area. Since then it has developed into a cement walking, jogging and bicycle trail that when finished will be 2.4 miles long. As of fall 2015 it is about two-thirds completed. It is mostly well lighted and runs from North Blvd. on its west to its eastern terminus. Most of the Riverwalk runs along the east side of the Hillsborough River and it ends along the north side of Tampa Bay. The Riverwalk passes a number of other places worth a visit, such as the Tampa Convention Center, the Straz Center (also known as the Tampa Bay Performing Arts Center), the Tampa Bay History Center and the Tampa Museum of Art. As of 2015 seventeen bronze busts of persons notable in Tampa's history line the Riverwalk; more are scheduled to be added.
