Best Place for an After-Work Jog - 2007
Buffalo Bayou Art Park/Eleanor Tinsley Park/Sabine-to-Bagby Promenade
150 Sabine St.
Houston, TX 77007
Though it looks like we can't decide which one of these places is best, the truth is their connections make them all winners. The trails running through Buffalo Bayou Art Park, Eleanor Tinsley Park and the Sabine-to-Bagby Promenade allow off-the-jobbers from many locations — including Montrose, Memorial and downtown — a chance to get their jog on without traveling too far. The trails provide plenty of beautiful views of nature, cityscapes and local art. (And by nature we mean forests, not just oak trees along a concrete sidewalk.) The numerous forks in the road make it easy for runners to create paths that are as short or as long as they want. The number of choices also helps deter overcrowding, which allows runners to see the competition (Read: check out the hotties) without feeling like they're jockeying for position in a marathon.
