A Portion of Equestrian Trail at Jay B. Starkey Wilderness Park Closed

Beginning Monday, October 22, 2018, a portion of the equestrian trail at Jay B. Starkey Wilderness Park will close for a project by Tampa Bay Water to improve water levels and ecological function at Bonnet Lake. Work is expected to take approximately four months and the closed area of the trail is expected to reopen in February 2019.

Construction crews will install a 12-inch pipe to divert water from Grassy Prairie to Bonnet Lake. For the safety of trail users, access to the closed section will be prohibited. Signs for an alternate route will be posted starting at the corral.
