Keller, Texas, is blessed with over 300 acres of developed parkland, 11 park sites, and more than 26 miles of hiking and biking trails. That’s a whole lot of park and land to cover. From playgrounds, to biking and hiking trails, to dog-friendly parks, read on for the best of Keller’s parks and trails.
Keller Sports Park
One of the biggest parks is Keller Sports Park, a huge complex of parks within a park. Covering more than 140 acres, this park is as impressive in person as it appears on paper. Seven lighted baseball fields, two football fields, two playgrounds, a fishing pier and pond on Big Bear Creek, a wildflower meadow, 1-mile hike and bike trail, equestrian trails, and so much more invite park visitors to stay and play for hours. Get lost in a game or in the surrounding beauty at Keller Sports Park.
Bear Creek Park
There’s something for everyone at Bear Creek Park. This 44-acre gem features two playgrounds, pavilions, picnic tables and grills, sports courts, a pond, and plenty of hiking and biking trails. The park is well-kept and offers plenty of beautiful trees that provide shade and scenery. If you make it out on a Saturday, be sure to shop the Keller Farmers Market, held from 8 AM to noon each week. And we must not forget the best part – the creek running through it. With wide-open spaces and serene surroundings, Bear Creek Park checks every “want” off the list.
Big Bear Creek Greenbelt
For some higher trail mileage, Big Bear Creek Greenbelt offers approximately 5.4 miles of trail from Keller Sports Park to Bear Creek Parkway at Lakeridge Drive (within the Hidden Lakes community). The trail bisects the city along the Big Bear Creek corridor and winds through parks and natural settings. Lace up those shoes and get to running.
K-9 Pointe Dog Park
Keller’s first and only dog park features separate areas for large and small dogs, a shade pavilion for hot days, a variety of agility equipment to keep your dog in tip-top shape, and water fountains. Make sure to visit a Yappy Hour, where locals can bring their dogs and enjoy free samples of local beer and wine. Best dog park, ever. Check it out!
