Community Set to Celebrate Expansion of Oyster Creek Trail
The “Show Me City” is proud to announce the ribbon-cutting ceremony for Phase II of the Oyster Creek Trail revitalization project. The community event will be held on Thursday, Feb. 9 at noon at the entrance of the new phase of the Trail, located off Cartwright Road. Residents are encouraged to attend and can park in the YMCA lot near the recreation field. City staff will direct participants to the trail across the street.
Oyster Creek Trail is an outdoor pathway for exercise enthusiasts who want to enjoy a scenic hike, bike, walk or jog. Missouri City recently upgraded the 2.31 mile path and it now includes a paved bike and pedestrian trail along Oyster Creek Bayou between Dulles Avenue and Cartwright Road, offering recreational and mobility opportunities for residents. The trail connects to Sugar Land’s trail and allows citizens to travel on foot or bicycle from Mosley Park off Murphy Road to Oyster Creek Park in Sugar Land near Highway 6. When improvements are made to the Cartwright Road Bridge this winter, the trail will be extended under the bridge and connected to the existing trail south of Cartwright Road.
