Get outdoors and enjoy the beauty of Dallas! Friends of the Katy Trail is here to help you experience one of the most important public spaces in the city. The Katy Trail has been going strong for over 25 years, thanks to a visionary group of neighbors who advocated for turning an abandoned Union Pacific railroad line into a greenbelt park. This vision has been realized, and in 2022, the Trail had nearly 2 million visitors! Today, you can join an amazing community of supporters of this destination for recreation, wellness, and alternative transportation.
If you love the Katy Trail for its mental and physical health benefits, as a place to connect with nature, or for its wonderful sense of community, then join us! Support FKT as a member and receive exclusive benefits such as a complimentary Katy Trail T-shirt with a $250+ membership and be invited to our first 2023 member party at Café Madrid on March 29, 2023.
You will also want to SAVE THE DATE to join 5,000 of your friends for the 25th Annual Michelob ULTRA Katy 5K on September 7, 2023! Follow the race at @Katy5K on Facebook
The Katy Trail is so grateful to be a Charity Partner of Run Project. Friends of the Katy Trail raises over $1 million annually each year to operate and enhance the Trail. We appreciate your support for this treasured greenspace of Dallas, and together we can keep the Katy Trail running strong!
