Segment 2 of the North Extension Opening October 7!!
Sarasota County will hold an opening celebration of Segments 1 and 2 of The Legacy Trail northern extension at 9 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 7. The event, which is open to the public, will take place on The Legacy Trail, north side of the Proctor Road intersection. Parking is available at 4826 McIntosh Road, Sarasota. With the remaining portion of Segment 2 opening after the event, trail users will be able to use the extension from Culverhouse Nature Park to Bahia Vista Street.
Since Friends of The Legacy Trail first proposed extending The Trail into downtown Sarasota in 2013, it has been a long, hard, campaign with many ups and downs along the way. The opening of these segments represents a very significant milestone for our community and all who have supported and worked for the Extension.
Here are a few scenes showing how we got here:
