A HUGE THANK YOU to all of our friends and neighbors who came to help out with the Rivercrest Park Clean Up. We had so many volunteers we were also able to clean up Haya Linear Park as well.
Some of the things we accomplished today:
- Trimmed all the undergrowth in our palms at the park. - Our sticker removal team cleaned up about 70 stickers off signs and fixtures in the park and along North Blvd. - Park signs cleaned. - Tampa Bay Diggers brought out metal detectors and removed A LOT of dangerous metal. Including nails and a metal block with spikes from the volleyball court. - Lots of trash and debris removal from the shoreline. Over 35 full bags of trash plus tons too big to put in bags.
We can’t thank everyone enough for your time and efforts this morning. You are the reason that South Seminole Heights is one of the best neighborhoods in Tampa. We appreciate you all! ... See MoreSee Less
I'm so glad that I came out and volunteered for such a worthy cause!!! I will definitely help again!!
Amazing work everyone! Thanks for your efforts!
Been thinking this all day and finally getting around to saying it.... as I left Rivercrest Park this morning and walked home along Haya Linear Park I saw some our volunteers still working, people walking, riding bikes, people working in their yards and I had this really good feeling while admiring our cool, clean 'waterfront,' and also had a sense of pride about our 'hood...it was a good start to a good day.
Such a great day cleaning up the river. I swear I heard her thank us😜
Thanks for the event. So glad I am here in Seminole Heights!
Thanks for spearheading the clean up!!! Pulled out 2 plastic chairs from the river plus a gamut of trash!

We want to provide a brief update on your South Seminole Heights Civic Association.
We are very proud of how our board of volunteers has come together to work for the betterment of our community. From social events, to cultural projects, to community clean ups, to traffic/pedestrian safety and more it has been great to see the impact that has been made when individuals work together in unison for positive change. Recently we have shared some amazing projects we are working on and we are excited to see what the future holds and the impact we can make on South Seminole Heights.
As an association our longstanding purpose as outlined in the original bylaws has been “to educate, promote and encourage civic pride and awareness of issues impacting the neighborhood in the area known as South Seminole Heights while revitalizing a sense of community in a safe and healthy residential neighborhood.”
The SSHCA Board has considered that purpose, drafted long before any of us took on the responsibility of serving the board, and determined that one of our roles as an association is to drive and facilitate communication on issues that impact our community. Those who have called Seminole Heights home for long enough will understand that regardless of which neighborhood you reside in, there will inevitably be issues that our neighbors are passionate about.
Moving forward the SSHCA Board will continue to provide information and details about issues impacting South Seminole Heights. However, the SSHCA Board will not take an official stance on issues, instead aligning with our purpose above by promoting awareness and education. By aligning our actions with our mission, we allow every voice in our neighborhood to be heard equally and fairly, regardless of their opinion on any given subject. This also prevents the SSHCA from misrepresenting our diverse group of residents, who may have differing views. Instead, residents should express their opinion to the appropriate, relevant entity, whether it be city council, county commission or any other agency or body.
We believe that this renwed approach will allow our association to continue focusing on efforts to improve our community and instill a sense of pride in South Seminole Heights. Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions.
