On the northeast side of the Tampa Bay area, Temple Terrace is strategically situated between three major interstates—I-4, I-75, and I-275. This ideal location makes Temple Terrace conveniently located to not only the Tampa/St. Petersburg area, but also within a short driving distance to Orlando and the Sarasota beach areas. Adjacent to the City is the University of South Florida, the second largest university in the southeast, and home of quality medical research programs and the largest MBA program in Florida among public universities. City residents also have convenient access to the area’s finest medical facilities, cultural activities, sporting events, shopping, and entertainment attractions, such as the neighboring Busch Gardens Tampa Bay family adventure park.
Once marketed as “Nature’s Masterpiece”, Temple Terrace is integrated with the natural environment as a beautiful tropical paradise with lush surroundings; winding residential streets lined with mature grand oaks and cypress; and neighborhood parks in serene settings. The boardwalk at Riverhills Park along the scenic Hillsborough River offers a quiet reprieve from life’s hectic pace, and provides access to the water for leisurely boating, fishing, and canoeing.
Our diverse and unique neighborhoods have a wide variety of beautiful homes—historic Mediterranean Revival houses of the 1920s intermingled with modern architecture provide a variety of housing styles to accommodate individual tastes and desires. Sidewalks and walkways abound to provide convenient pedestrian access to parks, schools, and recreation facilities.
The Temple Terrace Golf & Country Club is one of the largest 18-hole PGA courses in the state. The semi-private club is affordable and family-friendly, featuring formal and casual dining and banquet facilities, a pool, and clubrooms. The championship course winds its way throughout the City and no two holes are adjacent. Cart rentals are available, or residents may drive their own carts to and from the course.
