Key Points

The Timberlane Trails project seeks to improve public accessibility to community green spaces and amenities.


The design connects local neighborhoods to green spaces and transportation amenities.

Evidence-based design

Recommendations are based on evaluations of existing conditions and community needs.

Asakura Robinson designed a short, 2.5-mile trail system and nine trail heads for the Timber Lane Hike & Bike Trail in Spring, Texas.
The trail heads were designed to be visible neighborhood landmarks that guide users throughout the trail system, connecting six neighborhood subdivisions to a high-quality recreation amenity and to the Mercer Arboretum and Botanical Gardens, Timber Lane Park, and Spring Park and Ride.
They will serve as a meeting point, place of rest and orientation, and include a trail map, benches, bike racks, and water fountains. As part of the design team, Asakura Robinson evaluated the existing recreational and pedestrian/bike amenities as well as community needs to prioritize improvements and optimize design solutions.
