Kudos to the City of Sanibel, SCCF, the Sanibel Bicycle Club and the many people who have worked to make both of these trails a reality. Another gem for my island paradise! Darla
Pond Apple Park Trail Improvements Complete—Trail Reopened to Public
City of Sanibel, Sara Tabor
Improvements along the Pond Apple Park Trail have been completed and the trail is now reopened to the public.Improvements along the Pond Apple Park Trail have been completed and the trail is now reopened to the public. The trail was temporarily closed for park maintenance and construction of an elevated boardwalk along one of the wettest portions of the trail. This is the second of two boardwalks constructed along the Pond Apple Park Trail this year. The Starr Thomas Memorial Boardwalk was completed in March 2014 and connected the Pond Apple Park Trail to the Shipley Trail on the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation’s Bailey Homestead Preserve. The recently completed trail improvements will provide the public year-round access to Pond Apple Park and will allow visitors to hike or bike, using off-road bicycles, from the Sanibel-Captiva Chamber of Commerce to Roadside City Park.
