“great park to walk in”
Review of Rothenbach Park

Rothenbach Park
Ranked #58 of 151 things to do in Sarasota
Attraction details
Reviewed 8 April 2013

safe enough to walk alone or bring some friends. The landscape actually differs throughout the 3 mile walk. About half of the trail is in direct sun, so bring water and a hat! Sometimes, you can see the RC Squadron folks flying their planes.

I was not eager to write this since it will increase the number of people using it. It is a nice, little park. Small playground and a nice walking trail. What makes this place really interesting is the Model Airplane Shows that are on some weekends. If you see the sign at the entrance on those weekends...go in...it is fun for the kids to watch.

Easy ride to walk and bike. Fabulous picnic area. The park has a closing time, and you will be locked in if you don't leave on time!

The reviews on here already have it right, but I just wanted to add about the wildlife you can also see sometimes on the trails and near the big lake. I've seen deer, armadillos, owls, cranes, hawks and even a rare gator. This is really a great place for a run as you never know what you're going to see and the nicely paved trails and scenery make it go by much more quickly. There's also a nice playground for families and lots of open space. This isn't a big tourist attraction, but it's a nice, free way to see some of natural Florida.

Hidden in the east side of Sarasota, Rothenbach Park is a lovely, quiet space away from the bustle and heat of the beach scene. It has a 4-mile circular trail that is perfect for biking, jogging, or walking. Much of it meanders through well-shaded forested places where you are likely to encounter deer and sand hill cranes. Adjacent to the parking lot is a nice playground for your children and picnic areas. It's a great place to center yourself in the beauty of Florida nature. Hours are 6am-6pm.
