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

Excellent recreational paved pathway running from the Venice Train Depot to the beach . Scenic pathways bracket the intracoastal with plenty of boat traffic and people-watching opportunities. Saw gopher tortoises in both of our recent visits. Do not miss this fabulous spot.

We parked at the old train depot and headed south to the Circus bridge where we crossed the canal and continued south to Caspersen Beach. On the return, we followed the path along the west side of the waterway to the north end and returned back across the Circus Bridge and to the car. There is very little shade along... More

My wife and I are accustomed to walking 4 miles daily and were surprised to discover the Waterway Park. We visited it almost every day and got to walk as far as we wanted. What a view! There are plenty of benches to satisfy those that need to take time out and the walkway is wide enough to handle walkers,... More

This wide concrete pathway along both sides of the Inland Coastal Waterway is absolutely the best walking/biking facility along the Gulf coast! The scenery is terrific, the conditions are smooth and safe and it connects with other major destinations/attractions such as Shamrock Park on the south east end (and from there cyclists can follow the painted fish to Manasota Key),...
