Hidden in the east side of Sarasota, Rothenbach Park is a lovely, quiet space away from the bustle and heat of the beach scene. It has a 4-mile circular trail that is perfect for biking, jogging, or walking. Much of it meanders through well-shaded forested places where you are likely to encounter deer and sand hill cranes. Adjacent to the parking lot is a nice playground for your children and picnic areas. It's a great place to center yourself in the beauty of Florida nature. Hours are 6am-6pm.
