“Quiet bit of shady nature tucked in Sarasota”
Review of Rothenbach Park

Rothenbach Park
Ranked #53 of 147 things to do in Sarasota
Attraction details
Reviewed June 19, 2012

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.

What a beautiful park. I usually go to Legacy Trail to rollerblade or run but heard about this park and decided to try it out. It was incredible, I am in love! A very good amount of shade for Florida Trails. There are a few gently rolling hill opportunities. It is great for a short bike ride or a nice run but would not recommend for rollerblading as the trails asphalt is rough. Nice play equipment for children. Very nice and clean restrooms. A nice gem!

We have frequented the park, often busier on weekends, but never crowded, winding wooded trails, nicely paved, nice rest room facilities, kids playground area.. most trails shaded from hot sun, easy access, ample parking.. thanks Sarasota Parks!
