Bachman Lake Park
This 8-foot-wide trail is tailor-made for runners, so you don’t have to worry so much about a head-on collision with a Cannondale. The trail is 3.5 miles long and offers a scenic run around the perimeter of Bachman Lake, plus a chicken’s-eye-view of all the Southwest Airlines jets landing and taking off from Love Field just beyond the edge of the lake. The trail is at its peak on weekends, so if you’re more concerned about fitness than people-watching, visit during the week. Best of all, some of the city’s top taquerias and Mexican restaurants can be found just outside the park’s entrances along Northwest Highway.
