Temple Terrace is a city in northeastern Hillsborough County, adjacent to Tampa. The community is known for its rolling landscape, gorgeous Hillsborough River views and majestic trees; it has the most grand sand live-oak trees of any place in central Florida. Originally planned as a golf community, the city was named for the then-new hybrid, the Temple orange. Temple Terrace was the first place in the United States where the new Temple orange was grown in large quantities. Temple Terrace is currently in the process of redeveloping fifty acres (the southeast quadrant) of its 1960s-era downtown. The goal of the city is to build a mixed-use, medium-density, pedestrian-oriented downtown.
