The drought in Texas took its toll on this magnificient gift to Houston, but it needs updating and unless you are into dirt trails and noisy traffic - go somewhere else.

The trail for jogging and walking is a solid 3 mile trek. The trail is not paved so you have to be very careful not trip over any exposed tree roots otherwise a pretty nice trail. At night it can be difficult to find parking and the trails are packed with runners and joggers. For the most part the trail... More

It not only boasts a 3 mile running trail which is well maintained and provides convenient water fountains along the route, it also connects to other parks in Houston such as Allen Parkway. It is...

The Arboretum is amazing for a quiet stroll and place to commune with nature. Beautifully maintained and tastefully arranged. There's something surprising around every corner.

Want to get in three miles, maybe more? This is perfect, it is open to the public and has a 2.9 mile dirt track, and for $1.25 you get a shower and a locker (provide your own lock) at the tennis center.

I love this loop. A perfect 3 miles. Tall trees, wide soft path. Enough people to feel energized, but wide enough paths to never feel squished. Big beautiful trees. Ahhh

Great place to spent your day, you can do a lot of activities there. Bike to downtown or just in the park. Place for volleyball, golf, football, and bbq at the same time. I really really recommend more people to go there and escape from their work/watching tv life schedule.

This place is amazing because of it's natural look. No modern landscape architecture which is pretty rear these days. Felt like walking around in a rainforrest, and it got me wanting to go to the amazons for my next vacation.
