Sarasota County Parks, Recreation and Natural Resources, in partnership with Friends of the Legacy Trail (FLT), has announced the start of the 2018 surrey ride program. This popular program offers a fun option for residents and visitors who are mobility-challenged or might otherwise be unable to enjoy the experience of riding on the trail. FLT volunteers pedal the surrey and passengers on a free 45-minute surrey trip that leaves from Laurel Park on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from Jan. 9 through March 28, 2018, with times available each day at 10am., 11am and noon. The ride includes information and the history of the Legacy Trail and its surroundings. Pre-registration is required by calling 941-486-2757. Space is limited to four participants per ride, per time slot, and participants must sign a waiver. Passengers meet inside the Sandra Sims Terry Community Center at Laurel Park. The surrey was a donation by FLT to Sarasota County to promote the Legacy Trail and other county parks. The Legacy Trail is the regional backbone of a recreational and nature-based trail system connecting communities across Sarasota County and stretching into neighboring Charlotte County.
