News & Announcements
We once again are collecting names and addresses of Temple Terrace veterans in order to honor them during the week of Veterans Day with a special yard sign. Please forward this info to Marketing & Communications Officer Laurie Hayes at email@example.com or call 813.506.6406 and leave a message by November 8. (This data will not be shared publicly.) Signs will be placed in veterans' yards by November 10.
Thank you for your help in honoring family, friends and neighbors who have served our country. Note - If you received a sign last year and stored it away, place it back in your yard during the week of Veterans Day so that you can be included in our recognition. (The new signs will be identical to those distributed in 2020.)
Sprint - or Stroll - for Safety
The City of Temple Terrace once again is teaming up with Bike/Walk Tampa Bay to get residents out and active in October with a "Sprint for Safety" Virtual 5K. Those who choose not to sprint can stroll as part of the initiative. And there's no need to walk alone. Bike Walk Tampa Bay and the City will host a one-mile walk through the Terrace with Mayor Andy Ross on Saturday, Oct. 16. Meet up at 9am at Billy Graham Preservation Park, 913 N. Riverhills Drive, and join Mayor Ross on a route that passes by five of the city's most historic homes. Bike Walk Tampa Bay will have on-site give-aways for all walkers, who can sign up at the link below to receive a completion certificate. You'll also come away with a better knowledge of our City's past!
Whether you're sprinting or strolling, sign up for the "Sprint for Safety" any time during the month of October. Record your effort on the Race Roster page. 5K runners will receive a finisher’s medal via mail, and those who complete a one-mile run or walk will get a certificate. Get more information and sign up here.
The City of Temple Terrace Division of Parks & Recreation, with support from Joanne Kelley, Realtor with Hamlin & Associates, presents the City's FALL FESTIVAL on Saturday, October 30 from 6:30 - 9pm at the Family Complex Soccer Field #1, 6610 Whiteway Drive. Activities include: Trunk or Treat; Haunted Walk; DJ and Dancing; Carnival Games; Food Trucks; Family Photo Area; Kids Arts and Crafts, plus a Costume Contest at 8:30pm.

In light of the recent surge of individuals contracting COVID-19, effective immediately, all staff and members of the public entering City buildings including City Hall, the Family Recreation Complex, Public Works, Omar K Lightfoot Center and the Public Library are required to have their temperatures checked and to wear a mask. In-person library programs have been suspended until further notice. City facilities will be cleaned and sanitized regularly to further mitigate any spread of the virus. All are encouraged to wash hands frequently and avail themselves to hand sanitizer from dispensers placed throughout the buildings. Social distancing is encouraged. Individuals who are experiencing symptoms of the virus are requested to stay home.
