Sarasota County has invited the community to a kick-off celebration for the Legacy Trail Extension this Friday, June 28, when the Sarasota County Board of County Commissioners will unveil the signed bond that finances the voter approved project. The event, to be held at Payne Park, brings together elected officials, volunteers and the community to mark the official start of the "Race to Completion." The event runs 8:30-10am.

The Legacy Trail was opened in 2008 and currently provides over 10 miles of trail from the Venice Train Depot to Culverhouse Nature Park. Voters approved a referendum in November to extend the trail by nearly eight miles and enhance connectivity from the City of North Port, through Venice and downtown Sarasota. An estimated quarter of a million people use the trail annually, and it provides safe recreational opportunities to walk, bike and run.
