Sanford Riverwalk Description

The Sanford Riverwalk Trail follows the shoreline of Lake Monroe in Sanford, FL, north of Orlando. The riverwalk extends from US 17-92 to Mellonville Avenue and is one of the most scenic paved trails in the county, featuring views of Lake Monroe. The trail also provides access to historic downtown Sanford.

Sanford Riverwalk Trail connects Lake Monroe with Wayside Park, Log Cabin Memorial Park, Veterans Memorial Park, Fort Mellon Park, Sanford City Hall, Seminole County Courthouse, Sanford Museum, a public boat ramp, Rivership Romance and the restaurants and shops of downtown Sanford.

A new segment is under construction and will extend the trail west for 2.4 miles, from the Central Florida Hospital to just west of Interstate 4. This new segment is slated for a summer 2020 completion date.

Sanford Riverwalk Reviews

Sure wish I had such a nice walking trail by me! The walk is about 4 miles for the full loop. Nice wide sidewalk that allows for passersbys and faster walkers and runners. Lake Monroe is very pretty and the street way is nice too. Lots of wildlife to see, view the marina, stroll past the kids park, stop in at the museum, stop for coffee or treat yourself to a beer and pizza.

This is a great trail for walking, jogging, fishing, or enjoying a beautiful sunset over Lake Monroe. It's also within walking distance to a ton of fun restaurants, bars, and shops in Downtown Sanford.
