I have to say they did a great job with the Worlds Rowing event. The word from everyone in Sarasota before, during and after the event is that they did an awesome job. And don't forget the hurricane just before the event, Great JobMore

Great place to bike run walk or just sit. They have 3 different paths to exercise on. The crushed shells will give you a harder workout.

I have never seen anything like this. This is a world class racing place. It is next to the UV Mall. Some of the best restaurant in Sarasota.

Other than the Legacy Trail, I can't think of a better public gift than Benderson Park. It's just a fantastic facility for our rowing teams, but more than that, it offers a tremendous walking/running/biking trail around the lake for use by the whole community.

It's great to have a sporting facility of this caliber in the area - the paths (especially along Cattleman Avenue) could use more trees however - to provide shade in Florida's hot sun. Overall though - well done!

We do have it in the future plans to obtain funding for a shade structure as we are aware of the heat that occurs most of the season.

You can find a map of the park on our website. The walking trail loops the entire lake and is roughly 3.4 miles in total.
