Shingle Creek Regional Trail Extends to the South
Extending to the South
Imagine a beautiful Central Florida morning as you walk through Kissimmee Lakefront Park. Birds are flying from branches of large Live Oak Trees while visitors in the park walk their dogs, take their kids to the playground, or enjoy a morning walk. Now imagine if that walk could extend far past our award-winning park on a trail that winds along Lake Tohopekaliga. You won’t have to use your imagination much longer as construction on the next segment of the Shingle Creek Regional Trail (SCRT) is set to begin on Monday, July 23, 2018.
This latest phase of the trail system is nicknamed “Toho Vista” for its stunning view along our City’s largest body of water and is the first phase of the southern section of the trail system. Once completed, the Toho Vista portion will connect with a residential bike path on Clyde Avenue that runs to Kissimmee Lakefront Park. This phase will then extend the trail a little under a mile from Clyde Avenue through an undeveloped, natural area along Lake Tohopekaliga that is sure to create spectacularly beautiful views for residents and visitors.
Amazing Views & Amenities
Just like previous phases of SCRT, the Toho Vista section will feature benches, shade structures, call boxes, landscaping, and both informational and directional signage. Besides the lakeside view, this trail section will stand out for its 102-foot bridge over the West City Canal. Construction on the Toho Vista segment is projected to be complete by winter 2019.
