F. E. Lykes Foundation

PARKS

The F.E. Lykes Foundation is a charitable organization serving the Tampa Bay area. It's mission generally is the enhancement of our community environment and public spaces.


Parks  |  One of the main interests of the F. E. Lykes Foundation is to enhance city park environments by adding water elements, splash pads, shade trees, landscaping and many seating options, providing multiple places for individuals to play with friends, to gather with family, or to relish in solitude.

Most recently, the Foundation has teamed up with the Tampa Theatre to show free movie screenings in neighborhood public parks. See “parkCINEMA” tab for full schedule.
