The Legacy Trail Surrey Program kicked off on Jan. 10 at Sandra Sims Terry Community Center in Nokomis and will run on Tuesdays and Wednesdays through April 12. The surrey departs three times a day at 10 a.m., 11 a.m. and noon.

In partnership with Friends of The Legacy Trail, Sarasota County Parks, Recreation and Natural Resources presents this free program for those with mobility challenges who want to experience The Legacy Trail.

“This program is to give those folks a chance to ride and see the Legacy Trail,” said Sarasota County Parks, Recreation and Natural Resources Volunteer Coordinator Brenda Canales.

This six-seat, four-wheeled canopy covered cycle is pedaled by two volunteers who give a 45-minute guided tour. Up to four riders get a chance to sit back and soak in the wildlife of The Legacy Trail.

Those who are interested in riding in the surrey must reserve ahead of time. For information, call 486-2757.
