The Neptune Road Recreational Pathway, also known as the Bill Johnston Memorial Pathway, connects Kissimmee's Lakefront Park to St. Cloud in central Florida. The 10-foot wide trail exits the Kissimmee Lakefront Park and runs along the north side of Lakeshore Boulevard, turning southeast to follow Neptune Road. Brinson Park is at the corner of the two roads. The trail stays parallel to Neptune Road all the way east, crossing two bridges as it goes; one, over Florida Turnpike and later over canal C-33 where it enters St. Cloud. When you come to Old Canoe Creek, turn right for the final 1.8 miles of the trail.
The trail is part of the route of the Florida Trail, the 1300-mile trail concept across the state. The western end in Kissimmee also offers a connection to a segment of the Shingle Creek Regional Trail, a rapidly-developing trail system that will eventually run seamlessly from Lakefront Park all the way through Orange County to Wekiva Springs State Park.
In Kissimmee, you can park at the Lakefront Park (201 Lakeview Drive, Kissimmee). The 25-acre park sits on the north shore of Lake Tohopekaliga and celebrates the area’s rich environmental and Seminole heritage through native vegetation, artistic elements and interpretive signage. Amenities include picnic pavilions, a playground, splash zones, open fields, walking trails, a fishing pier and boat launch.
You can also park at the Partin Triangle Neighborhood Park across the Turnpike (2830 Neptune Road, Kissimmee). There’s parking, restrooms, a playground. You can also book airboat swamp boat rides there.
