Dylan Park
A park without limits, Dylan Park is named after an area child who was severely injured and later died from child abuse.  It has areas designed to engage children who are sight impaired, hearing impaired, autistic or wheelchair-bound. The park also includes open grassy areas for unstructured play.  Spring Recreation Area includes walking trails and a community center, and the facility is completely fenced.

Trails

The 3.5-mile STEP trail will eventually intersect with the already existing trails throughout the District. Eventually Jack Drake Park will be connected via already completed trails and those currently in development to Thomas R. Wussow Park, City View Park, Ida Gaye Gardens and the North Houston Skate Park.
