Getting to Shamrock Park by Car
We often recommend this starting location to our customers who are coming to the area from points south of Venice. Upon arrival at the entrance to the park drive all the way in and pick a spot anywhere near the big building. Be aware that this park has daylight operational hours, and that they close the entrance gate at night. Your car can become locked in the park if you do not leave before sunset closing-time. Check with Sarasota County for times of operation.
Riding from Shamrock Park to The Legacy Trail.
Many of our bike rental customers like to extend their ride by including the Venice Trail with The Legacy Trail. Both of these sections are on the mainland-side of the Intracoastal Waterway in Venice. To reach The Legacy Trail from Shamrock Park follow the Venice Trail north for approximately four miles. (The waterway will be on your left as you head north.) The junction point of the two trails is at the Historic Venice Train Station. Likewise, from anywhere on The Legacy Trail you can bicycle to Shamrock Park simply by pedaling south.
