The Hillsborough River is along the Western Border of Seminole Heights. Rivercrest, Henry and Ola and Epps parks are very nice, tree shaded parks. Rivercrest Park is right on the river, with large open area, playgrounds, covered shelters, and boat and fishing docks.  Rivercrest Park is located on the South end of Seminole Heights and is connected to Henry and Ola Park by a sidewalk lines path that goes directly under the Hillsborough Avenue Bridge (so no crossing 4 lanes of traffic- both pedestrian and bicycle safe).  Henry and Ola Park is also a large park with softball and soccer fields, a large playground and plans for a community dog park are in the works.  Epps Park is located in the Northern part of Seminole Heights. The parks sits directly along the banks of the Hillsborough River and many of the Florida wildlife can be seen along the way. There is also a canoe launch and picnic tables.
