At this time, all Coppell parks, playgrounds, trails and green spaces are open. We urge you to continue to practice social distancing measures when in the parks or on the trails. We encourage users to follow the recommended social distancing guidelines and maintain 6 feet of space from others.
Coppell’s trail system currently consists of approximately 14 miles of multi-use hike and bike trails, a 1.1 mile decomposed granite soft running trail, and 5 miles of preserved nature trails. Since 2015, the trail system has been expanded by 25%, and future plans include 6.5 additional miles in the next 2 years, including providing greater connectivity to surrounding cities.
View the Trail Implementation Master PlanThe vision for the continuation of the trails system is to provide easy access at any point within the City, and connect to the regional trail system linking other surrounding communities.
Thirty-six 911 trail markers along the Andrew Brown Trail system and the Campion Trail allow first responders to better pinpoint your location should you need emergency assistance along the trail. The map below illustrates the color and code assigned to each section of trail.
A lightning prediction system is in place in some of the busier park sites and along some trails within the City. The system is designed to alert park, trail and ballfield users that the conditions are favorable for lightning strikes.
When conditions are right, the system will sound an alarm. A warning can be provided 8 to 20 minutes before a potential strike occurs. The system monitors a 2-mile radius around the unit. When activated, those in the area should seek shelter immediately. The lightning prediction system operates from 7 AM - 11 PM, seven days a week.
Park visitors should always assess weather conditions before going outside and always be prepared to take the appropriate action needed to ensure safety.
