David's World Cycle (Casselberry)
A short neighborhood/school trail, but with plans to connect with other neighborhood trails. Casselberry is doing a good job of becoming more bike/pedestrian friendly.
The trail starts off the Kewannee Trail along Wilshire Blvd.It crosses SR436, then runs along 436 to Cannon Way, crosses Winter Park Drive and Mark David Blvd. to Wirz Park. Wirz Park has parking, restrooms, playground, nature trail, swimming pool, basketball court, baseball fields, picnic pavilion. A 0.6 mile trail loop follows the nature trail around the park and includes a pretty boardwalk.
From the trailhead, across the boardwalk turn left. The trail winds along behind South Seminole Middle and Casselberry Elementary Schools. Turn right and follow the trail to Crystal Bowl Park. Road markings (sharrows) and signs along Laurel Way, Brittany Circle and Wilshire Drive lead to Wirz Park.
From the trailhead, the trail crosses Winter Park Drive and winds along a wooded area past homes and the Casselberry Golf Club. It ends at Triplet Lake Drive near Southcot Drive.
Casselberry is expanding its bike/pedestrian network by adding wide sidewalks, recreational trails, and shared bike lanes. One paved path runs from Piney Ridge Road to SR436 to N. Oxford Road. Wide sidewalks along N. Oxford Road lead to Southcot Drive - follow the sharrows to S. Lake Triplet Drive and the Casselberry Greenway. (August 2017)
