The Friends of the Katy Trail is a non-profit organization founded to
organize community support for the Katy Trail, to advocate support for
the Trail, to raise private funds for the completion of the Trail and to
help the City of Dallas plan, build and maintain Trail improvements.
The Katy Trail is a 30-acre linear park running through the densest part
of Dallas. The pedestrian and bicycle trail connects 125 acres of
interrupted urban parkland with more than 300,000 residents living
within a mile of the park. The Trail currently extends 3.5 miles from
Lyte Street near the American Airlines Center to Airline Road near SMU,
part of a future plan to connect White Rock Lake to the Trinity River.
