The City of Dallas owns the land, but it’s private donations that make the Trail beautiful. The nonprofit group Friends of the Katy Trail works around the clock year-round to keep the Trail in peak condition.

We maintain and landscape the paths, provide lighting, signage, benches and fountains, hire Dallas Bike Officers for safety patrols, and pay all utilities. Without Friends, there would be no Katy Trail. And without donations from members, corporate sponsorships, and annual fundraisers, the Trail would go nowhere. It isn’t tax dollars, but support from citizens that keeps the Trail on track.

If you want to ensure the Katy Trail stays clean, safe and beautiful, join us. You can support Friends of the Katy Trail through capital contributions, corporate sponsorships, and personal memberships.

A city like Dallas needs a natural resource as beautiful as the Katy Trail. The Katy Trail needs you. Join us, and see where it leads.

Take a look at our budget and our funding sources in our 2015 Annual Report.
