Lake Louisa State Park

Clermont's Waterfront Park
Clermont Clay Trail
Lake Louisa State park

Waterfront Park is located along Lake Minneola, between East Avenue and Eighth Street. A fitness trail that is part of a 30-mile system, and will be part of the coast-to-coast trail, runs through the park and provides a great path for running, walking and jogging. It connects to the West Orange Trail via a great shaded bike path.

October 2022 Update: The Clay Trail is currently closed due to construction on Wellness Way. Check back periodically for new information.
The Clermont Clay Trail is a 10 mile loop on back roads with rolling hills, with a few steep ones, help to provide variety. Expect great views the entire way. This trail is a favorite of local triathletes and running groups, but it’s good for all visitors who want to enjoy the softer surface. 

The natural theme park of Lake Louisa State Park showcases a diversity of wildlife, including deer, bobcat, gopher tortoises, fox squirrel and flighted creatures like bald eagles and osprey.

Running and bicycling is popular on the park’s seven miles of paved roads over rolling hills and on the 20 miles of unpaved multi-use trails.

I had a wonderful experience at this store. Beth was my sales associate and she went above and beyond to help me find the right pair of shoes. The staff are all very friendly and very helpful. I highly recommend this store. There are not a lot of stores left like this to offer you this kind of service.
Great place with great customer service! Highly recommend! Nik was friendly, knowledgeable and he taught us a new way to tie a shoe for better support.

I was looking for a special type of shoes that I need for my feet problems. I was told about Dash Sports by a new friend(Melissa). So I went there and Kimberly helped me and also on what type of shoes that I needed. She also contacted podiatrists to see where I can get a special lift on my right shoe. Kimberly is so kind and so helpful. I will highly recommend Dash Sports if anyone needs shoes.

I was from out of town and needed new sneakers. Bursitis in my heels and planter fasciitis were making walking extremely painful. Annette took the time to learn about my issues and recommended a great pair of Saucony sneakers. Awesome shoes. Making a big difference. Thank you Annette and Dash Sports. I highly recommend them for carrying great products and knowledgeable, friendly service.

I and my extended family have shopped for our shoe needs at Dash Sports for some time. I date back to when Track Shack in Orlando was the only game in town and can honestly state that I have never purchased from an athletic store that paid more attention to your specific needs than the folk at Dash do. They have extensive inventory and their prices are conpetitive. You’ll be very satisfied with your shopping experience at Dash Sports.

Pleasant experience on buying a pair of shoes on this store. Explaining the pros and cons on different brands making easier for customers to decide.
Annette was amazing, had us walk for her, brought out several shoes so we could determine which was the best for us. We were there for over an hour never felt rushed and she definitely listened to our concerns. Will only be buying our shoes there. She was the best.
The associates were very warm, welcoming & very helpful.Nick my salesperson, was very nice & helpful.It was a pleasure to shop there.I will definitely shop there for shoes in the future.
