There are 87 miles of trails and walkways, across the city, including 6 miles of soft surface trail. We invite you to step out onto one of Richardson’s trails today! Explore our trails for fun, fitness, and relaxation, or a healthy and enjoyable means of transportation.

Many of our trails border other City park and recreation facilities, including picnic areas, recreation centers, tennis courts, sports fields, and golf courses. Venture out onto one of our trails today, and take a big step toward a healthy lifestyle! View our interactive trail map for details.

Our goal is to have all of Richardson’s parks connected by a trail system. To meet that end, the Trail-Way Master Plan map has been created that outlines development of trails that will link existing trails within the City to one another and to adjacent cities. This linkage will provide avenues for alternative modes of transportation such as walking and biking between home, work, school, shopping, and mass transit.

The Trail System Map (which can be zoomed and printed) indicates the existing multi-use trails with solid lines, which are 8 to 12 feet wide trails that can accommodate pedestrians, rollerblades, and bicycles but are not always suited for fast bicycling. The proposed multi-use trails, shown as dashed lines, will also be 8 to 12 feet wide paths suitable for both pedestrian and bike traffic. The bikeways (in lines of yellow circles) are routes through the City that indicate preferred routes through the community via bicycle based on scenic and safety value. Bicycles on bikeways are on the street as legal vehicles subject to all public safety regulations.

Walking trails surround most of our parks, and scenic sidewalks are also available to connect existing walking trails. For more detailed information on walking trails and scenic sidewalks, please contact us at (972) 744-4300.
