Burns Court is a small section of downtown Sarasota that is a real gem. Located a couple blocks south of Five Points, where Orange and Pineapple converge, it is a walkable, friendly, interesting area that is a visual treat. Historical buildings, neat and trim landscape with trees and "human scale" make this very pedestrian friendly. The unique shops, art cinema and restaurants can keep you engaged for a delightful morning, afternoon or evening.
Denise Kowal, building owner, proprietor and community leader is working to increase Burns Court's visibility and unique character.
A recent project is inlaying decorative mosaics in the sidewalk, giving this area a new twist of character.
Fanciful designs including stars and undersea looking creatures make you look down at the art work.
Denise is part way through her project and has several new sections of sidewalk targeted for the next installment.
Take a walk around and enjoy the offerings in this unique area.
