Kiest Park in Southwest Dallas offers dogs the opportunity to walk two loop trails.  The dual-use (walking, biking) trails are currently 8-foot wide with a center yellow line.  We visited on a sunny, spring Saturday in late March.  The park was bustling with activity.  The trails were busy with walkers and jogger but we met few bicyclists.

 

We chose to visit Kiest Parks because it will become the heart of Dallas' proposed Five Mile Creek Trail System.  As part of the the trail system development the trails in Kiest Park will be improved and widened to 12 feet.

 

Kiest Park is a nice neighborhood park with ballfields, picnic areas, playgrounds, and open areas for kite flying and other activities.  The long loop is approximately 1.75 miles in length and follows the west, north, and east park perimeters.  The short loop is 0.5 mile in length, sits just south of the long loop, and encircles a large open field perfect for kite flying.

Parking here just south of the ballfields allows trail access and choice between the 2 loop trails.

Bench & Red Rail


Shaded bench near bright red rail protecting trail uses from steep embankment.

Benches / Trail Connection


On the west side of the smaller loop trail connects with the longer loop trail.  From here, the 2 loop trails share the same path along the west and north edges of the smaller trail.

West Side


The larger 1.75 mile loop follows the park's western edge bordered by S. Hampton Road.  Here the walking dog will find the picnic areas.

Kiest Park has lots of parking on the south where we parked, around the many ballfields, and here near the main building and playground area.

Border by Rugged Drive, the east side offers the exploring dog some open green areas to explore.
