Farmers Branch Trails

Trail Master Plan
Farmers Branch currently has numerous trail connections in the heart of the City, but is eager to implement a Trail Master Plan that provides connectivity for all of Farmers Branch. This vision will help link neighborhoods, schools, parks, and key destination points within the City and to surrounding communities.

Why are Trails Important to Farmers Branch?


In Farmers Branch we think of trails as "linear parks" and as a community that brands itself as a "City in a Park" having an extensive network of trails is a priority to our City Council and to our citizens.

In addition, trails in a community make it easier for people to incorporate exercise into their daily routines, they are safe havens for walking and jogging, bicycling, family and social outings that connect people to places they want to go, such as schools, transit centers, businesses and neighborhoods.
