About the Katy Trail –
Beginning in the Spring of 2000, a 3.5 mile, landscaped pedestrian trail system, known today as The Katy Trail, was constructed along abandoned railroad tracks that once divided the City of Dallas. The Trail accommodates pedestrians, joggers, cyclists, and in-line skaters from Mockingbird Station to the American Airlines Center in Victory Park.
Friends of The Katy Trail, a privately funded and community supported organization, raises money to keep the trail in peak condition for residents and visitors. Friends of The Katy Trail have teamed up with SWA Group to create a $23 million Master Plan for the trail system. The plan includes four major entrance plazas, ADA-compliant entrances, benches, landscaping, drinking fountains, and a connection to the Trinity Strand Trail.
