What's New in CityTrails?
The City of St. Petersburg has recently completed renderings of the proposed plans for the second phase of the Historic Booker Creek Trail from Dr. ML King, Jr. Street to 3rd Street South. On Tuesday, April 8, 2014, a neighborhood-wide open house was held to review the renderings, preliminary plans, hear answers to previously-submitted questions, and solicit input from the community. Below you'll find a copy of the presentation and illustrations shown at the meeting for this exciting project! If you'd like to provide a comment on the project, please use the comment form below (include hyperlink here to either the Word or pdf version) and kindly submit to Cheryl Stacks, Bicycle Pedestrian Coordinator,firstname.lastname@example.org, 1744 9th Avenue North, St. Petersburg, FL 33713 by Friday, April 25, 2014.

The online bike map is a complement to the 2009 printed version and includes additional information, such as TrailBites locations, public restrooms, and retail bike shop locations.
St. Petersburg's TrailBites allows trail users to find eating establishments located within mile of a CityTrails recreational trail, including the Pinellas Trail.

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?
St. Petersburg's CityTrails are facilities for non-motorized traffic, primarily bicyclists and pedestrians. They include bicycle lanes, bicycle routes, recreational trails, sidewalks, crosswalks, and other devices that assist people in getting around St. Petersburg without a motor vehicle.
