Springwoods Neighborhood Park

21934950042_6744dbc896_zSpringwoods Neighborhood Park (9117 Anderson Mill Road) is a 12 acre Northwest Austin park with a 0.5 mile trail. The trail is flat, shaded, and partially gravel, partially paved. It’s intermittent paving make it a fun place to do fartlek workouts (or speed play) by sprinting the paved sections and jogging the gravel sections. It’s a well-used park; I counted seven other users, all with their dogs, on the chilly morning I visited, even at an early hour. I ran a total of three miles here.

This park has ample parking, tennis courts, a neat playground, and several nice picnic pavilions. The trail is quite meandering and makes the laps around more interesting. It’s not very secluded and you’ll hear traffic noise throughout, but it’s still a good run destination.

Other parks I have attempted to visit recently but are undeveloped and not runnable are Schieffer Tract, Shinoak Valley Greenbelt, and Steck Valley Greenbelt.

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.
