About Alderman's Ford Regional Park

This scenic regional park includes the area where the Alafia River branches into its north and south prongs. The Alafia River is one of the most popular canoe spots in the state.

Several picnic areas are connected by a pedestrian/bicycle loop path. This path, together with the boardwalk and foot bridges, is perfect for a self-guided tour as it provides a first-hand view of Hillsborough County’s abundant flora.
The main picnic area has nine shelters for family or group use, and an enclosed, air conditioned pavilion for large gatherings. All are available for rental by calling 813-635-3510.

A pedestrian/bicycle trail loops for more than two miles through the park, offering scenic views of the Alafia River.
