Spring weather beckons from extensive parks, trails and safe sidewalks, inspiring active lifestyles
When spring weather shines on the Energy Corridor – with all its parks, greenery, trails and sidewalks – it’s easy to see why HoustonProperties.com recently named this bustling place as one of Houston’s top 11 neighborhoods for running, hiking and biking.
The Energy Corridor’s close access to hike and bike trails make it a natural for this “best of” outdoor recreation list, which cited destinations like Terry Hershey Park, George Bush Park, Cullen Park, Bear Creek Pioneers Park, Nottingham Park, Edith L. Moore Nature Sanctuary and Millie Bush Bark Park as reasons to celebrate if you enjoy getting outside.
From the Energy Corridor District’s sidewalks, bikers and hikers can travel along more than 50 miles of trails, one of the Houston region’s largest trail networks. Outdoor enthusiasts also relish 26,000 acres of recreational parks nearby.
Safe routes for bicycling, jogging, rollerblading and strolling can be found adjacent to most neighborhoods and businesses in the Energy Corridor District.
“The weather now makes it the perfect time to get outside and enjoy the parklike setting here,” says Rachael Weaver, community relations coordinator for the District. “It’s easier to maintain a healthy lifestyle when there are so many trails, parks and safe sidewalks.”
