While Tampa is famous for its beaches, they aren’t the only waters you can enjoy when you live in Riverview. The city is named for its location on the Alafia River, a waterway flowing into Tampa Bay that is popular for kayaking, boating, and fishing, along with its waterside parks and restaurants.

In addition, close to home you can enjoy one of Florida’s natural wonders – its freshwater springs! At Lithia Springs Park, crystal clear waters bubble up from underground aquifers at a cool 72 degrees, which is delightfully refreshing to swim in on hot days. The park also hosts hiking trails through diverse natural habitats, fishing, picnic areas, a playground, and campsites.

  • Collins Elementary School – Parents give this K-5 school high reviews and Google.
