When we're looking to burn off some energy and log some miles, we head straight to Memorial Park. Spanning 1,466 acres, it is one of the largest urban parks in the United States and has been set up to offer everything a runner could want. The three-mile loop is always a satisfying jaunt, full of people-watching opportunities, as well as water fountains and bathrooms. At night the path is well-lit so you can still exercise after work in those dark winter months. And if crowds aren't your thing, Memorial Park offers plenty of other running paths and trails too.
