Jose Marti Park (Parque Amigos de Jose Marti), Tampa
The property was donated to the island by resident and prominent Cuban revolutionary Paulina Pedroso. Pedroso ran a boarding house on this site, where Jose Marti stayed during his visits to the Tampa area. Marti stayed here while recovering from the attempt on his life in 1892.
In the park today, you'll find monuments honoring Marti and Jose Antonio de la Caridad Maceo y Grajales, along with statues and a mural. Parts of this park contain soil imported from each of Cuba's provinces. It's a small park that will only take a few minutes to visit, but the history of the place is impressive for its small size.
