What's New in CityTrails?
Walter Fuller Park Connector Trail
Construction is scheduled to begin this month for the Walter Fuller Park Connector Trail. This exciting CityTrails project will be an approximately 1-mile trail that will connect Walter Fuller Park and Pool with the Pinellas Trail. The trail is designed to accommodate bicyclists and a wide range of pedestrians. It will be a concrete path that varies in width from 10 feet to 12 feet as the path winds from the park and along 26th Avenue, 72nd Street, and 22nd Avenue North. We anticipate that construction will be completed in the Spring of 2015. For more information, please contact Cheryl Stacks at 727-892-5328 or email@example.com.

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.
