Two Recreational Trails Program grants were utilized to complete 1.4 miles of both paved multi-use and natural surface equestrian trail in Palm Bay, Florida.
The Boundary Canal Trail links Palm Bay’s Turkey Creek Sanctuary (a 117 acre park of diverse habitat that includes a 1.5 mile boardwalk, jogging trails, canoe decks and nature center), Malabar’s Cameron Wildlife Preserve (100 acre natural conservation area with existing equestrian and off-road bicycle and walking trails) and Brevard County’s Malabar Scrub Sanctuary (395 acres of endangered Scrub Jay habitat with multi-use trails for biking, walking and bird watching).
Biking, jogging, rollerblading, hiking, equestrian use and mountain biking are accommodated by the Boundary Canal Trail. The trail is the first part of the Brevard County Greenways and Trails Master Plan System to be implemented.
At its completion, the trail will be about two miles long and is part of the South Brevard Linear Trail plan, a 22-mile contiguous multi-use path that will meander through the southeastern end of the county.
