May 21, 2024

By Natalie Cook Clark

Katy students start Summer break this week! Check out the parks, go for a walk, jog, or take a bike ride through Katy's awesome hiking and biking trails! Get outside and enjoy family time.

Storm Damage and Summer Park Info

Get ready for Summer and get to know your local parks. Katy ISD wraps up their school year this Thursday and families will have time to explore outdoors.

Thursday's storm caused damage to many areas across the Katy area. John Paul Landing Park and Rushing Park are currently closed because of storm damage.

Follow the City of Katy Parks and Recreation on Facebook as they post information on summer camps and events all held at Katy city parks.

Exploring Your Neighborhood

Enjoy miles of winding trails through one of Katy’s newest subdivisions. Walk, run, or bike, alone or with the family, through the well-cared-for trails throughout Cane Island.

Katy’s Cinco Ranch community features many subdivisions offering peaceful, tree-lined trails. The scenic paths, of varying lengths, loop around lakes and creeks in the neighborhoods. Click here for a link to trails.

The hiking and biking trails in Cross Creek Ranch offer miles of paved paths with gently rolling hills. Follow the trails along the lakes, and take breaks on shaded park benches, and enjoy the beautiful landscaping, home to diverse wildlife.

Elyson has almost 30 miles of trails that weave through the subdivision. Residents can bike, run or walk on the paths that surround lakes, lead to parks, or the fruit orchards. A new part, Bear Creek Commons has a dog park, outdoor fitness center, and more to explore!

Residents of Firethorne subdivision have a trail inside their neighborhood. Firethorne Lake features a .06 mile walking trail that follows its perimeter, plus a 2-mile track around the Wildlife habitat. Seating is also available along the trail.

The mature trees in Nottingham Country provide a rich landscape for the 44-acre Greenbelt Park. Two miles of asphalt trails welcome bikers and joggers, or people on a leisurely stroll taking in the open green space.
