Lott Pocket Park/Meadows at Trinity Crossing Neighborhood/Norman School Park/Greater Works Baptist Church track

Lott Pocket Park (1180 Curve Street) is a small park that is a pretty little spot to run, surprisingly quiet despite its proximity to I-35. Each lap around the sidewalk that surrounds it and its block equals 0.21 miles. There is a splash pad, gazebo, water fountains, street parking, and ample benches and grills. The park is on a bit of slope making for a little incline challenge.

Meadows at Trinity Crossing Neighborhood (5900 Sendero Hills Parkway) is a lovely spot that consists of a playground with picnic facilities around it flanked by long straight stretches of sidewalk. The sidewalk area is very manicured and overlooks a more wild area of meadow that is just teeming with life; the sound of insects, frogs, and birds is quite enjoyable to listen to in this quiet neighborhood. Near the entrance to this neighborhood there is a development of many modern homes, the architecture of which provides a neat view. The pathway is pretty sun-exposed but is flat.

Norman School Park is located at 4101 Tannehill Street, not 3901 Tannehill Lane like the Parks Directory lists. There’s a small playground and not much real running potential here; you can get 0.62 miles per out-and-back on the sidewalk that borders the park and school, but it’s not really worth the drive in my opinion.

Across the street from Norman School however, there is a flat gravel track on land owned and maintained by Greater Works Baptist Church. The 1/4 mile loop is not a public park but is a pleasant, partially shaded place to run if you’re in the neighborhood, despite a little industrial noise on one side.
