Row. Run. Ride. Repeat.

That's what's happening at Sarasota's Nathan Benderson Park these days, along with kayaking, adaptive sports, corporate events and other heart-pumping activities.

But there's room for solitude, too, if you like.

Stroll the paths, stand upon a bridge and peer into the swirling water. Or, like one gentleman, unfold a chair, drop a line and relax.

Sometimes, free time is best spent not doing much of anything, and if you pick a good place to do it, that's just fine.

Bradenton Herald is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news.
