Welcome to Urfer Family Park in Sarasota! I've been wanting to visit this park since it opened a couple of years ago, and finally went there this past weekend. Here's the background: Sarasota County purchased 55 acres from the Urfer family and turned it into a wonderful recreational area with trails, picnic areas, playgrounds as well as wide open space. (Believe it or not, the park is adjacent to a busy road.) It's a great area for families....which leads me to today's photo. The pedestrian bridge is closed due to a resident family. And with that little tease, the SDP staff is busy behind the scenes gearing up for another series.
