Congressman Vern Buchanan (fifth from the left), city officials from St. Petersburg, and members of the Trust for Public Lands (TPL) recently met at the north end of the Legacy Trail. The group rode the entire length of The Legacy Trail from Culverhouse Nature Park Trailhead to the Venice Train Depot and back. During the ride they viewed features of the Legacy Trail and discussed its eight mile extension to downtown Sarasota. Congressman Buchanan is an avid cyclist and a strong supporter of efforts to extend The Legacy Trail. The City of St. Petersburg is seeking an extension of the Pinellas Trail, and TPL is working on The Legacy Trail and the Pinellas Trail extensions to acquire the railroad right-of-way.
