Here are some pictures of the beautiful Sanford Riverwalk just by Sanford Downtown. If you walk North from First Street you will get to it easily (within a couple of minutes). This beautifully landscaped walkway along the shores of Lake Monroe is about 1.2 miles long and makes a great place for all kinds of activities with or without your family. You will see people walking, riding their bicycles or rollerblading along the Sanford Riverwalk. Especially when the temperatures “cool down” a bit (say 80s and below) this is one of the most relaxing, yet fun places to spend a morning or afternoon. Along the Sanford Riverwalk you’ll also find benches and romantic swings to enjoy the idyllic view of Lake Monroe.
During and after tropical storm Fay this year (August 2008) the Riverwalk was closed due to flooding, but fortunately no damage was caused and everything is back to normal now.
