    You can play all day but if you only run the loop it'll take you about the time of a 5k. There are also outdoor work, and a play ground out stations available.
  2. A hidden gem for those wishing to escape the bustle of the city, this park hidden within a residential district offers a very extensive path along hills and wooded areas as well as along a pleasant creek and wide open fields further down the path.

    Time can be lengthened dramatically by taking the right at the fork, and then continuing to the left side of the fork before turning around and returning to the park entrance. Time can be lengthened further if continuing toward Benbrook Lake.
  3. In the year 2000, Dallas started construction on the old MKT (Katy) rail line in order to turn this abandoned set of tracks into an urban park. Situated in Dallas in the Uptown District, the 3.5 mile paved Katy Trail is a favorite among locals.

    If you take the loop, you can return to the beginning. Multiple exits to the park connecting to longer stretches of road running trails can extend your run greatly, as can routes that take runners out and back.
  5. Foster Park is a simple and easily run path that unites with the nearby Kellis Park, as well as with the much larger Overton Park to the north. This is the largest beginning of the southern section of the larger Trinity Trails System that is still in the city proper.
