The Trinity River is your river. And if it’s not already close to your heart, it soon will be. Because every day more people are discovering the Trinity and all there is to see and do.

Like birdwatching and nature hikes at the Audubon Center. Horseback riding at Texas Horse Park. And acres of parks and forest with miles of trails connecting you to this natural treasure.

The Trinity River is your river. A relatively wild landscape that enriches our lives with access to nature and a beautiful space to unite and gather. Take advantage of it. Take it to heart.
