The City of Sanford has really fought hard against the growing pains that have hit Central Florida. However, in the past few years we've seen them work hard to put Sanford on the map.
One such way is through the revitalization efforts in the downtown area. The Riverwalk Park which borders historic downtown Sanford and Lake Monroe was a costly and long-drawn out process. Some of the restaurants and shops still have not opened yet, but the architecture and user-friendly style inviting the visitor to stop and dawdle along the way is quite great.
The sidewalks are WIDE, there is unlimited seating. This is handicap and baby stroller friendly. There are also sturdy rocking swings along the path.
Kudos to the City of Sanford! If you have a free Saturday come out to RiverWalk and eat dinner at Hollenbach's Willow Tree Restaurant afterwards!
