Located in northeastern Hillsborough County, Tampa Palms is marked by quiet tree-lined streets and lush tropical landscapes that hide the world outside its boundaries, yet it is situated just a few miles from the University of South Florida, major medical facilities and popular tourist attractions. It’s convenient to the I-75 and Bruce B Downs (CR 581) corridors, making downtown Tampa and Tampa International Airport only a 25- to 30-minute drive away. A plethora of shopping, dining and entertainment choices await you just beyond the main entrance.

The entrance is marked by a large red brick monument featuring a black and gold granite sign, a theme that is repeated throughout the community. Much of the original architecture is reminiscent of “Old Florida.” The beautifully landscaped Tampa Palms Boulevard  leads you past Tampa Palms Golf and Country Club, founded in 1987. The Mediterranean-style clubhouse features a 25-suite hotel, where your out-of-town guests can relax in luxurious surroundings and enjoy an exquisite dining experience in the newly-redesigned Elements restaurant. Activities include an 18-hole Arthur Hills golf course; a junior Olympic-sized pool; fitness center, massage and spa services. In addition, ample space for meetings, banquets, parties and receptions make membership at TPG&CC a much-desired enhancement to your lifestyle. 

Even though Tampa Palms is the largest community in the New Tampa area, its amenities rival many small towns. With 2 elementary schools, a middle school and a high school within walking distance or a short drive from home, your children will live, learn and play in the comfort and safety of your community. Shaded walkways and bike paths provide easy and safe access to the schools, as well as opportunities for exercise and recreation. Well-lighted roadways help you get home safely after dark.

 An unusual aspect of Tampa Palms is its park system. Five community parks provide a variety of events and opportunities to enjoy indoor and outdoor activities. The Community Center at Compton Park offers a clubhouse space for meetings, as well as a heated, junior Olympic pool and courts for tennis, basketball and volleyball. Amberly Park includes jogging trails and a picnic pavilion. At both parks, you will find fenced playgrounds with unique state-of-the-art EVOS and WEEVOS equipment, where children can engage in imaginative play while parents keep watch from swinging benches and chairs nearby. Wide expanses of well-manicured, open greenspace encourage families and friends to gather for outdoor games and picnics. Hampton Park is a hub for athletes, with its tennis and racquetball courts, beach volleyball pit and basketball courts.  In addition, the New Tampa YMCA is located within the community and supplements many of the activities available to residents.

Because of the unique environmental nature of the community, responsible stewardship is a top priority. Situated at the convergence of three watersheds, Tampa Palms includes thousands of acres of conservation lands abounding with native wildlife. The two remaining properties in the park system serve to protect and perpetuate these sensitive areas. Tampa Palms Hillsborough River Park is a rustic Florida oasis with canoe and small boat access to the Hillsborough River. Throughout the 45-acre nature preserve, you will find nature trails, camping areas, fire pits and picnic facilities. The 10-acre Oak Park conservation area provides a safe haven for endangered gopher tortoises and ancient oak trees, as well as walking and biking trails. In addition, colorful and vibrant landscaping in common areas throughout the community serve to enhance its natural beauty. Many of the water features are specifically designed to encourage wildlife to congregate, and it’s not uncommon for traffic to stop while a family of Sandhill Cranes crosses the street.

Whether you’re moving to Tampa to work or to retire, Tampa Palms offers you an upscale lifestyle that is uniquely Florida.
