Best Place For First Steps

Central Park

Built around ponds to collect runoff for pollution and flood control from the 173-acre Central Market residential and retail complex, but the 39-acre park is a tranquil setting with a smooth 5/8-mile trail that provides no problem for beginning footsteps. There are lots of ducks and wildlife, a picnic area, the playscape behind the grocery store, and the deck at the cafe. Enter from the Guadalupe parking lot or the retail stores on the Lamar side.
