I hopped on my bike the other day and rode from White Rock Lake down the Santa Fe Trail towards Fair Park. After a pleasant ride, the trail delivered me (almost) to Fair Park's front door. I entered the park through the main gate and headed north to Washington Street. I then headed east and rode a roughly three-mile loop around the park's inside perimeter. Three times. The parking lots are not -- big surprise -- all that interesting. But the rest of the park is actually very enjoyable.
The thought occurred to me that Fair Park should be a destination for recreational cycling. This would be a great way for people to get familiar with the park. I can easily see people exploring the lagoon or the art deco paintings along the Esplanade. It would be a pleasant experience. It would also be a good way for people to connect with Fair Park.
