Montopolis Neighborhood Park/Nicholas Dawson Neighborhood Park

11.11.14 Posted in South by

Montopolis Neighborhood Park (1200 Montopolis Drive) has a flat 0.4 mile unpaved loop trail. There is on-site parking next to the rec center here; this park also has a pool, playground and sports courts. It was deserted on the day I visited but the adjoining backyards sure had a lot of territorial barking dogs.


Nicholas Dawson Neighborhood Park (704 West James Street) has a short unpaved trail that is basically a path through the block. It’s about 0.25 miles out and back. There is just one parking spot at this address. It’s a nice little wooded jaunt with a small swing set and Austin’s most ornate trash can.

This blog chronicles my journey to run in every park in Austin. As an outdoor enthusiast, admirer of wildlife, and ultramarathoner who’s completed more than 35 distance races around the country, I explore our great green spaces while combining that with my fitness pursuits.
