Loved this place. Beautiful area beside the intercostal waterway with a really great bike trail. We rode 7 miles and I am told the trail is much longer.

You can see dolphins, manatees, fish and turtles on this nice long walk to Casperson Beach. It doesn't have a lot of shade, but is pleasant. Doggies on leashes are welcome.

I enjoy biking, running or rollerblading on this lovely waterway park. I see birds, trees and lovely water while I am exercising all at the same time. What a joy this place is for many people!

On our yearly visits to Venice, we always take a day to ride bikes along the waterway. The concrete paths are wide and flat which make for an easy ride for all. We start out at a bike rental shop in north Venice that backs...More
