Houston School Park/Joslin Neighborhood Park


07.29.14 Posted in South, Uncategorized by

Houston School Park (5506 Tallow Tree Drive) offers a short (0.18 mile) flat gravel loop. It’s very exposed to the sun but is a nice quiet place if you’re into running many laps. The tiny track is pretty well used; there were four people out on the muggy weekend morning I was here. There are no other facilities here but parking is easy to find when school is out.

About ten minutes away at 2106 Cimarron Trail, Joslin Neighborhood Park has pretty much the same set-up. It’s also next to an elementary school and features a flat gravel trail; each lap is 0.22 miles. It offers a bit more shade and was deserted when I ran here. One can easily park in the street but there are no other facilities here either except a sport court.
