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 Transportation Advisory Board was created of residents to work with city staff to improve all modes of transportation.
Their mission as it relates to walking and biking is “To create and promote a viable and safe pedestrian and bicycle-friendly infrastructure and promote these modes of transportation throughout the city.“
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.
Please note that shop links provided are within a five mile radius of the City of Winter Park. There are several other shops, as well as clubs and associations available in the Central Florida area.
