Park: Nottingham Park
Location: 14205 Kimberly LN, Houston, TX 77079
Trail Length: 0.75 miles
Nottingham park is the perfect park for beginners, or those with kids that will enjoy the park while you jog. The trail is only 3/4 of a mile, which gives the beginner a nice scenic loop with several workout stations along the way.
I’m the kind of runner that does not enjoy running loops and try to get in at least a 3-mile workout, but this park is special because of the workout stations. To complete 3 miles I need to run the loop 4 times. That gives me a chance to stop at each station 4 times so I end up with 40 pull ups, 40 sit ups, 40 dips, and 40 push-ups. That’s ideal for me.
There is also a wonderful place to start or end your run that has all the workout stations. It’s actually a kid fit center with a small rock climbing wall, but has all the pull up bars, push up bars, sit up station and it also has some monkey bars.
The park also has two tennis courts, a 12 hole disc golf course, a huge playground for the kids right next to a wonderful water park.
There are a few tables for picnicking as well.
Please watch the video above for detailed images of the park and make it out for a run.
