Bicycle/Pedestrian Programs


The City’s goal is to provide a safe, convenient, efficient, continuous, and aesthetically pleasing transportation environment that is conducive to cycling and walking. The City of Gainesville Bicycle/Pedestrian Program seeks to facilitate the use of these alternative modes of transportation by focusing on infrastructure enhancements, safety and outreach.Click here for a timeline history of the Bicycle/Pedestrian Program



Seeking Name for Trail:

City of Gainesville Wild Spaces & Public Places staff has received feedback that
 “Sweetwater Recreational Trail” might be a confusing name for the future trail from
the south side of Depot Park to the intersection of SE 16th Avenue and Williston Road
since so many parks include the word Sweetwater.                                                        

Seeking input on the possibility of a trail name for the segment. Staff could default
to a descriptive name as has been done for others…something like…“Depot         
Park - Sweetwater Wetlands Park Connector Trail”.                                                 
Have any ideas on a name for the trail?
