Hike the Trails in Timberlane

In North Houston each of I-45 and just north of Mercer Arboretum is Timberlane where numerous trails and parks have been created by the Timberlane Utility District. This waterboard group has created one of the best examples of living in nature in an older neighborhood in the area. The parks and facilities include:

  • Timber Lane Park, on 12.4 acres, containing a one-half mile concrete walking/jogging path, an athletic field with baseball backstop that is suitable either for baseball or soccer, a children’s playground with swings, a slide and play structures, a picnic area with picnic tables and barbeque grills and men and women restrooms
  • Liberty Park, on 3.5 acres, containing a walking/jogging trail, a covered picnic pavilion and men and women restrooms
  • Spring Community Playground, a community-built playground located within Liberty Park containing playground structures, swings, a climbing wall and a tot-lot for children ages 5 and under
  • Sandpiper Park, on 37 acres with hiking and biking trails, fishing pond, a picnic area with picnic tables and barbeque grills and men and women restrooms
  • Herman Little Park on 55 acres with walking/jogging path, an athletic field soccer, a children’s playscape with wood play structures, a pavilion with picnic tables and barbeque grills and men and women restrooms, wetland observation area, skatepark, exercise stations, and fishing pond
  • Cypress Creek Hike and Bike Trail on 70 acres with 2 miles of mountain bike trails and an additional 2 miles of hike and bike trails
  • Cypress Creek Park, on 104 acres with 3 lakes, skateboard park, 2 pavilions, 2 fishing piers, 2 observation decks, playground, natural surface trails and 1 mile of paved trail

While some of the master planned communities might not think this is a big accomplish, it is a huge feat for an established neighborhood to create this years after the community was developed.
