A casual running trail that was carved out by Memorial Park users over the years has been turned into a 1.5-mile, shaded ten-foot-wide path open to both bikers and runners.

The new path, on the north side of the park, was officially opened today by Mayor Annise Parker.

"The addition of this new trail will greatly improve the experience for countless park visitors," Parker said. "The multi-use trail will give runners, walkers and park users more options to choose from when they want a little exercise or just a stroll in the park."

Thanks to KTRK's Miya Shay for the photo, btw.
