The Katy Trail is a privately-maintained public park that extends 3.5 miles from SMU at its north end to the American Airlines Center in the south. As a linear park, it features a 12-foot-wide concrete trail and an 8-foot-wide soft-surface running path, with more than a dozen public entrances and plazas linking the Trail to other area parks, turning the 30-acre Katy Trail into 125 acres of contiguous parkland in the heart of Dallas.
The Friends of the Katy Trail, the nonprofit organization that supports and improves the Trail, needs you to become a “Friend” of the Katy Trail. As a friend, you’re invited to exclusive member events and receive quarterly newsletters with updates about the Trail. With your donation, we can continue to keep the Katy Trail clean, safe and beautiful. If you’re already a Friend but have friends who are not, please ask them to join today. Together we can make the Katy Trail a great American park. For information on how you can support the Katy Trail, please call 214-303-1180 or visit www.KatyTrailDallas.org.
