The Northlakes Sports Complex, 2640 North Lakeview Drive in Tampa has gotten a major landscaping upgrade, courtesy of the Greater Tampa Association of Realtors and Hillsborough County Parks & Recreation.
On Nov. 18, volunteers from the Realtors association beautified the Northdale-based park by planting some 40 live oaks, robellini palms, purple tabebuias, crepe myrtles, bald cypress and red maple trees, along with 20 blueberry flax lilies.
Volunteers also deep-cleaned the park’s concession stand and made other landscaping enhancements, according to a news release.
A portion of the November project was funded through a Community Rebuilding Grant from the National Association of Realtors; funds for the trees came through the Hillsborough County Tree Fund.
The popular complex includes baseball, soccer and lacrosse fields; basketball, pickleball, tennis, and racquetball courts; and, playgrounds and walking trails. It is owned and operated by the county’s parks & recreation department.
