Duck Creek Trail (TX) Description

The Duck Creek Trail, sometimes referred to as the Duck Creek Greenbelt, follows its namesake waterway between the northeastern Dallas suburbs of Richardson and Garland.

Duck Creek Linear Park, through which the trail runs on its northern end, offers benches, drinking fountains and scenic places to picnic. The trail is also situated near Dartmouth Elementary and Apollo Junior High, providing children with a safe route to school. From the trail's northern tip, travelers can continue north on the Owens Trail, which runs just over a mile.

In Garland, the trail connects Bass Park, Gatewood Park, and Cody Park, offering numerous amenities and the chance to view wildlife. From its southern end, trail users will also be able to hop onto the Mesquite Heritage Trail for an additional 4 miles of riding.

In Richardson, parking can be found at nearby Huffhines Park (1500 Apollo Road).

In Garland, parking is available in Bass Park (3901 Duck Creek Drive), Gatewood Park (4917 Duck Creek Drive), and Cody Park (5601 Duck Creek Drive ).

Duck Creek Trail (TX) Reviews

this is a very nice trail for walking or biking.

A short, but nice scenic and clean trail, paved and well maintained. Ties into Huffhines park and Owens trail. Beautiful creek, and in the spring, it's very common to see ducklings following their mothers around-so cute. I would give it 5 stars, except NONE of the water/drinking fountains work. Well I don't know if they actually work or not, because they have been turned off for the 2 years I have been going to it. And if you need a restroom, you will have to hold it, or make your way to HuffHines park. These are close enough to my house in Garland to ride to without using my car to get there.
