Bayshore Linear Park Trail - Bayshore Greenway
Known as the World's Longest Continuous Sidewalk, Bayshore Boulevard is 4.5 miles of scenic views paralleling Tampa Bay. En route, you'll pass by some of Tampa's most prestigious homes, many on the National Historic Register, in Old Hyde Park.
This 10 foot- wide sidewalk starts on the north at the Columbus Statue Park at Platt Street and ends at Gandy Boulevard. A three mile on-road bike lane also exists along the north-bound lane of Bayshore Boulevard between Rome Avenue and Gandy Boulevard.
Trail amenities include benches, a water fountain, bicycle parking, a city marina and fitness stations. Parking is available at the Bay to Bay Park, Ballast Point Park and Fred Ball Park. Fifteen artistic cast bronze trail markers are embedded in the sidewalk, reflecting images borrowed from Tampa's natural environs, These markers denote each mile, half mile and kilometer southward along the trail. Designed by Michele Oka Doner in 1992, these pieces are entitled "Winged Figure: From the Firmament."
