The Legacy Trail

The Trust for Public Land and Sarasota County on Wednesday announced the purchase of 2.7 miles of former railroad right-of-way to extend The Legacy Trail to downtown Sarasota. The railroad corridor was acquired by Sarasota County from The Trust for Public Land, which recently purchased the corridor from CSX Transportation and Seminole Gulf Railway. The purchase cost $7.9 million. The Trust for Public Land is currently working with the Sarasota County Commission to consider a ballot measure for November 2018 that would ask county voters to approve funding to acquire the final 6.3 miles and pay for construction of the rest of the trail. The Trust for Public Land is a national nonprofit that works to create parks and protect land for people to enjoy.
