Urfer Park: Civics in Action

Urfer Family Park at the corner of Bee Ridge Rd. and Honore embodies the spirit of Civics 101 by mingling playgrounds with nature trails, boardwalks with wetlands, and Sarasota history with current operations of the Parks department.

Urfer just celebrated its first birthday, and also opened the newly refurbished C.B. Wilson House, a historical landmark building on the park property, which will serve as offices for Parks & Rec as well as a resource for trail maps and historical information.

Did you know Urfer Park is dog friendly? Here'as a map to a large swath of the park where dogs on leashes are permitted.

Here's a slideshow of events at the opening (still going on as this is typed):
