Sector 69 park

My running would probably have burned through the heat map in this garden. It is quite close to our house and a nice enough track. We have used it for intervals and for initial running training countless times. I once ran 20k here on a Saturday night since I did not want to run in the traffic.

Description: It is a smallish rectangle, but has many trees and a solid, flat track all around.

Surface: Dirt track. Wide enough for two people to run side by side. They have some cement paths as well, and if you want to, you can run on the grass. It is 500 meter all around which is convenient if you do not have a GPS watch to measure your distance.

Lighting: Yes, but a bit sparse, so carry a light unless you want to trip. There are places where a cement path crosses the track where you have to be a bit careful.

Washrooms: No.

Parking: Not really. There are a few parking slots on the fringes, and you can usually find a good enough place to park.

Beauty: Average

Atmosphere: This is a quiet neighborhood park. Peaceful and serene.

Rating: 6 out of 10

They finished this building about a year ago, but I have not seen it being used for anything.
