    5 Miles of bicycle/walking trails on each side of the Intracoastal Waterway.

    Available for use but can also be dedicated to the memory of someone or given as a gift.

  • Connects to the Legacy Trail

    Venetian Waterway Park connects to the Legacy Trail at the Historic Venice Train Depot: 301 E. Venice Avenue, Venice, FL 34285.

Connecting Neighborhoods, Parks, Beaches & Main Street

The Venetian Waterway Park (VWP) reflects the character of the area by creating a venue for walking, jogging, bicycling or just enjoying the natural environment. This linear park consists of 10 miles of trails along both sides of the Intracoastal Waterway and connects neighborhoods, parks, beaches and Venice Main Street.

Venice Area Beautification Inc. championed this project to enhance the quality of life for all residents and visitors to the area.

Beautiful & Pet Friendly

The Trail is also pet friendly. Pet stations are available at several locations along the Trail with basic supplies and disposal areas.

You will find benches, litter receptacles, dog clean-up stations, picnic shelters and grills, scenic views and glimpses of wildlife along the trail.

No motor vehicles allowed.
