What's New in CityTrails?
The City has recently completed the review of the comments received by the community in response to the updated design concepts for the Historic Booker Creek Trail through Woodbrook and Roser Parks that include the consideration of a boardwalk concept to minimize any negative impacts and protect trees. The reactions expressed at the February 24th community meeting and in the comments received through April 10th indicate majority support for the City to move forward with a detailed design of the boardwalk concept while also pursuing the Certificate of Appropriateness from the Community Planning and Preservation Commission. City staff will continue to work on these efforts concurrently and be sure to keep the public informed as appropriate in the project development. Thanks for your continued interest in the Historic Booker Creek Trail and St. Petersburg's CityTrails.

2009 CityTrails Master Plan Update
Fall 2009 report of the award-winning CityTrails Master Plan progress and achievements.
A Pedestrian and Bicycle Friendly City
Thousands of city residents and visitors have already discovered the joy of riding bicycles and walking in our community. The climate, beautiful park system, many retail and employment destinations and our wonderful neighborhoods contribute to the opportunities to bike or walk for health, recreation or work. We would like to expand these opportunities and identify ways to make them safer. The city has always had this vision. It was further confirmed during the city's Vision 2020 strategy sessions when so many people identified these features as important.
The Bicycle Pedestrian Master Plan will provide a framework to be used to achieve the goals for future bicycle and pedestrian enhancements for many years to come. I encourage you and your neighborhood to be involved. This is an opportunity to participate in a plan that will affect all of us.
Let 's make St. Petersburg the most "pedestrian and bicycle friendly" city in the country.
What are CityTrails?
