The Venetian Waterway Park Trail follows along both sides of the Intracoastal Waterway, from the ocean north and somewhat east, past the Venice Airport to north of Venice Avenue. It is flat and often windy, passing through a mix of urban corridor and open green space. Colorful murals, covered rest and picnic areas and interpretive signs dot the way. You will also find playgrounds, fitness stops and parks.
At the northern end of the trail, you can link directly with the Legacy Trail and continue toward Sarasota.
There are numerous access points and places to park along the Venetian Waterway Park. Refer to the local map for more details. For additional information, contact:
