What a beautiful trail. We hiked from the bridge on East Venice Avenue and worked our way down to Shamrock Park. Lots of opportunities to take pictures of nature ... the trees, butterflies, birds, the canal. This trail is best explored on a bike, since it connects on the Legacy Trail to the north, which is around 16 kms one... More

Loved this place. Beautiful area beside the intercostal waterway with a really great bike trail. We rode 7 miles and I am told the trail is much longer.

You can see dolphins, manatees, fish and turtles on this nice long walk to Casperson Beach. It doesn't have a lot of shade, but is pleasant. Doggies on leashes are welcome.

My wife, son and I stayed at a vacation home next to the Venetian Waterway Park trail and rented bikes so we could try the trail that meanders along the Venice inter-coastal waterway. What a fun experience! The trail is wide and level and has great views all along the way. It borders some of the last scrub forest one... More

The address on Tripadvisor is not even on the map, so we asked and a lady in a convenience store knew where we meant. We picked the trail up off Center by the airport it was great for cycling through totally unspoiled Florida, photographed a huge lizard and had a good ride, did not ride on the unmade trail because...

I am old so I walk. I don't jog anymore. When I am on the road I look for places to exercise and see local sights. (don't like boring treadmill if I can avoid it). I discovered this trail and its sister trail the Legacy while here in Venice. I walked the 3.9 mile portion on the East side of... More

I enjoy biking, running or rollerblading on this lovely waterway park. I see birds, trees and lovely water while I am exercising all at the same time. What a joy this place is for many people!

On our yearly visits to Venice, we always take a day to ride bikes along the waterway. The concrete paths are wide and flat which make for an easy ride for all. We start out at a bike rental shop in north Venice that backs up to the bike path. We go under the Circus Bridge and ride all the... More
