THE WESTCHASE DISTRICT'S LIBRARY LOOP TRAIL
Just seven months after the groundbreaking ceremonies that
launched construction of the Westchase District's Library Loop
Trail, the trail is regularly used by walkers, joggers and outdoor
The 1.35 mile trail loops east and west between the Robinson-Westchase
Library (on Wilcrest) and the United States Post Office (on Rogerdale).
The trail runs north of and parallel to Richmond Avenue.
Parking is available at the Library (3223 Wilcrest) and at West
Houston Assistance Ministries (10501 Meadowglen).
The $700,000 trail is made of concrete and varies in
width between 8 and 10 feet. Trail enhancements include water
fountains, benches, exercise stations, and landscaping.
A four-piece exercise station is installed on the north side of
the trail, approximately 1/4-mile
from the eastern trail entrance (on Rogerdale).
Meanwhile, design work on the second phase of the trail is
underway. The Brays Bayou Connector trail will run north and
south along the flood control drainage way way east of Walnut Bend.
This trail will feature underpasses at Richmond, Westpark Tollway
and Bellaire, allowing trail users to enjoy the 1.95 mile trail
entirely off-street. They'll be able to start their route in
Westchase District and connect all the way to Art Storey Park and
Harris County's trail network.
"The two Westchase trails will provide users with an off-street
connection to numerous neighborhoods and apartment communities as
well as employment destinations," says Irma Sanchez, vice president
of projects for Westchase District. "Our goal is to create
more off-street connections, and provide alternative transportation to
companies and neighborhoods."
