Terry Hershey to Cullen Park at Barker Cypress - West Houston

The Houston Parks Board is appraising options for connecting Terry Hershey trail at Barker Cypress to Cullen Park at Saums Road; see map.

Community involvement helps make projects like this happen and the involvement of users makes the projects better.

I'd like to contact anyone who lives in the area and would be interested in such a connection.

I live on Memorial near HWY6, and ride GBP all the time - this is right in that area and would allow a nice connection to the north of I-10. Also, to the velodrome.
Would support, definitely.

I'm not in the area at the moment but will likely be using such a connection in the future. I wont be able to attend any local meetings, but I can write a letter. Let me know what needs to be done.

That said, it seems like we'd still be relying on a sidewalk from park row to the start of GBP trail on Barker Cypress. Something is better than nothing I suppose. Anything will be an improvement over that undeveloped part of barker cypress.

I live a little further up Barker Cypress (near West Little York), but anything we can do to start connecting the north side of I-10 to the vast network south of I-10 is a huge positive for me. I can't safely commute by bike to my job in Westchase until there is a way to get across the Clay/Hwy 6 axis and get to I-10 safely. My dream is for them either to finish a connector down Barker Cypress at some point, or for them to do a path down Langham Creek to Bear Creek Park and then connect Bear Creek Park to the Terry Hershey system down near Eldridge. Quite a bit of that was part of the "West Houston Trails Master Plan" that was developed with great fanfare many years ago, and seems to have mostly gone nowhere since then. I wish we could spend a lot less time and money "studying" new options and instead start putting some of the plans that have already been developed into action.

I live south of here but my office is right on that corner and is part of my commute. I exit the reservoir and go north Barker and have to cross i-10. It is sketchy because the right two lanes are right turns and even if the pedestrian light turns white drivers will turn without looking right. Last week, someone got hit and killed riding 2 blocks north of i-10 and barker intersection. I would definitely be open to helping join any initiative.
