Pedestrian & Bicycle Program
Winter Park consistently has been one of the top spots in the country to visit. Not surprisingly, a good number of Winter Park residents and visitors enjoy walking and cycling for recreation or transportation.
Winter Park is committed to being a pedestrian and bicycle friendly community. In this effort, a Pedestrian & Bicycle Advisory Board was created of resident pedestrians and cyclists to work with city staff.
Their mission is “To create and promote a viable and safe pedestrian and bicycle-friendly infrastructure and promote these modes of transportation throughout the city.“
This board has developed a Pedestrian and Bicycle Circulation Plan (PBCP) to better accommodate pedestrians and cyclists. This plan was adopted in February 2011 by the City Commission as part of the Traffic & Transportation Plan. The PBCP plan includes all sidewalks and pedestrian pathways, shared use paths, bike lanes and signed bike routes.
The goal of the PBCP plan is to:
- Facilitate walking and cycling as viable recreation and transportation choices;
- Afford citizens the opportunity to experience the City's unique cultural and scenic amenities through walking and cycling;
- Provide access to healthful recreational activities; and
- Link parks and open spaces with Winter Park neighborhoods.
As a completed plan The City will now work toward implementing a pedestrian and bicycle facility network linking neighborhoods with parks, schools, and activity centers, as well as providing connections with surrounding communities.
