If you’re looking for a good spot to exercise in the Lower Valley, consider the Playa Drain Trail. The recreational trail is paved, making it easy for trail users ranging from older users to families with young children. On top of this the trail is jam-packed with amenities including benches, shade structures, water fountains, bike racks & bike repair stations, exercise stations, picnic tables and public art. Fortunately, the second phase of the Playa Drain Trail is in progress.
Residents who attended two public meetings were enthusiastic about the trail. In addition, neighborhood associations in the vicinity of the trail and the City have applied for CDBG funding for some segments. One segment is also a strong candidate for TXDOT funding.
