In addition to the loop trails you find in the above mentioned parks, we have many linear trails that connect multiple parks, greenbelts, schools, neighborhoods, employment centers, entertainment districts and transit centers across the city. Find a list of our linear trails here!

During this critical time, we believe that many parks, trails and open spaces can continue to be used in a safe manner that allows people to enjoy the mental and physical health benefits these spaces provide. If you chose to visit one of our parks or trails, we encourage all users to follow these recommendations:

  • Refrain from using parks or trails if you are exhibiting symptoms.
  • Follow CDC’s guidance on personal hygiene prior to and during use of parks or trails.
  • Prepare for limited access to public restrooms or water fountains.
  • While on trails, warn other users of your presence and as you pass, and step aside to let others pass.
  • Observe CDC’s minimum recommended physical distancing of 6 feet from other individuals at all times. If this is not possible, users should find an alternate location or depart that space.
  • Refrain from using playground equipment, sport courts (basketball/tennis/etc), dog parks, and other public park amenities.
