The Sulphur Springs Water Tower Lighting Ceremony - Page 1



Jan. 8, 2005

The Sulphur Springs water tower glows in the late afternoon sun on a picture perfect day for this historic event--the official night lighting of the tower.


The 13 acre park quickly fills with friends of the Tower.



Plans are for a "passive recreational park" on the 13 acre site, purchased three years ago at a cost of $2.85 million, with over $2 million of of it coming from the Hillsborough County Environmental Lands Acquisition and Protection Program.
This tree offers vertical climbing for the pros and a horizontal trunk for the novices.

The most recent threat to the park was by Walgreen's Pharmacy who planned to build a store on a portion of the land.  Residents of Sulphur Springs began a campaign against the store and thus helped kill the plan.

A crowd gathers to enjoy the live entertainment by the Michael Southern Band and await the moment when Mayor Pam Iorio turns on the big switch.
