Suncoast Scenic Parkway
Linking established and emerging areas of development in Hillsborough, Pasco and Hernando Counties, the four-lane, limited-access Suncoast Parkway (SR 589) has maintained its unique aesthetic design, developed to ensure a memorable overall scenic experience.
The parkway is part of Florida’s Turnpike Enterprise and it is a toll road. The Suncoast Corridor, which includes the Suncoast Scenic Parkway and Suncoast Trail, is designed to coexist in harmony with the natural surroundings.
The 42-mile Suncoast Corridor provides a safe, convenient, and enjoyable opportunity for travel and outdoor fitness for West Central Florida, while helping to meet Florida’s transportation needs. The Suncoast Trail enables non-motorized travel through a verdent greenway while providing connections to a number of multi-use trails, recreation and nature parks, and other destinations.
Florida Scenic Highways are often referred to as “byways.” One of the main requirements of scenic byway designation is that it show one or more of six key intrinsic qualities: Historic, Archaeological, Scenic, Cultural, Natural, and Recreational.
