"Great trail systems are associated with great cities."
Today the City of Dallas has developed one of the best hike and bike trail systems in the United States. How did this happen and what are the plans for the future? The results of a citizen survey, conducted in 2002 as part of the Department's Renaissance Plan, found trail development to be one of the highest priorities for Dallas residents. In response, in 2005 the Park and Recreation Department created The Trail Network Master Plan, a plan which outlined a 287 mile trail network throughout the City of Dallas. In the 11 years since the plan was adopted, the city has added 90 miles of trails and now has 153 miles in its network thanks to the help of city, county, and private supporters. What is the vision for the future of Dallas trails and how will it impact life and living in this city?
