On January 12, 2018, the Brevard community held
ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the opening of phase II of the Brevard Zoo Linear Park Trail.
The highly anticipated trail project now extends the facility, an additional 1.93 miles of boardwalk and asphalt, to Turtle Mound Road in Melbourne.
This community asset was funded via state and federal dollars through the Florida Department of Transportation and the Space Coast TPO. It provides visitors and locals with a total of three miles of ADA accessible trail for cyclists, runners, and walkers to use for recreation, exercise, and transportation.
The Brevard Zoo Linear Park Trail, like so many trail and transportation projects, is a testament to multi-agency cooperation and community support being vital in pushing projects forward. The project would not have progressed thus far if it wasn’t for voter support and cooperation between the Space Coast TPO, Brevard County Board of County Commissioners, Florida Department of Transportation, the Brevard Zoo, and A. Duda & Sons.
