Spring is a wonderful season in Texas, and there are many ways to enjoy the weather with outdoor activities close to our Houston apartments. Just a short drive from Lincoln Heights, you can find tree-lined walkways, a nature preserve, and even a heavily wooded overnight campground. Great outdoor fun awaits you!
Paul Carr Jogging Trail
Right in The Heights, you can enjoy a 1.5-mile nature walk or run that will take you along the Heights Boulevard Esplanade, roughly between The Katy and 20th Street. Along the way, you'll enjoy mature trees and vintage homes. Bring your own water for the ride, and stop by one of the eateries along the way if you need an energy boost. Don't miss the World War II Memorial Plaza at 11th Street.
Memorial Park Conservancy
Just southeast of where The West Loop and The Katy meet, a nature area twice the size of New York's Central Park awaits. Without leaving the city, you can see a natural prairie restoration and enjoy biking, croquet, or just a quiet picnic. At the southeast edge of Memorial Park, be sure and experience the Hogg Bird Sanctuary, home to many rare bird species and a fly-over migration stop for many more.
Lake Houston Wilderness Park
Just about a half-hour from downtown, you will find a heavily wooded getaway that is the only part of the Houston Park System that allows overnight camping. The park has campsites ranging from the simple to the elaborate, including lakeside cabins and larger buildings to accommodate groups. While you are there, you can try your hand at the archery range, saddle up and take a horse along one of the trails, kayak on the wooded creeks, or partake in a game of golf and tennis.
After enjoying these outdoor activities in Houston, relax back at your Lincoln Heights home and have barbecue delivered to your door.
