Tony Jannus Park remains the sad younger sister to Tampa's crown jewel, Bayshore Boulevard. In the 60s the Borein bridge was built along the North end of park, increasing traffic flow and speed around the park, with very little thought to pedestrian flow and access. Later on the Crosstown Expressway was built over the park, casting a shadow over the North half.
