If hitting up the long trails around East Dallas isn’t your thing, try taking a stroll along some of the loop trails and walking paths at neighborhood parks. That way you can take in nature without feeling like you’ve left your favorite East Dallas amenities behind.
If you’re looking for more of a cross-country kind of run, Lakewood Park might be for you. It has plenty of sidewalk space as well, but this playground off of Williamson has several well-kept dirt paths for runners who want to feel the earth beneath their feet.
In addition to a community pool, baseball diamond and tennis courts, Tietze Park on Skillman also has a concrete path running along its perimeter that is a popular spot for after-work jogs.
Winfrey Point Park
Winfrey Point Park, tucked away on the east side of White Rock Lake, offers a great view of the lake and features plenty of running and biking paths. It’s also not too far away from the White Rock Lake Park loop if you decide there’s time to extend your walk in the park.
