To avoid a trespassing charge, the best answer would be an official one. My advice would be to call the district Athletic Department and ask.


NISD Athletics • Paul Taylor Field House • 210.397.7509
7001 Culebra Rd. • San Antonio, TX 78238

Thanks Bo and elnina I'll be sure to give the school a call. Elnina thanks for the web link, seems like a good site to find tracks.

Some parks have tracks with distance markings. They are nicer to run

Interesting. I know some groups that meet at the Brandeis track. They must be rebels then.

I see people at the Lee track in the evenings, but that's a different district all together, not to mention a distance from the Jay area.

If so, that is extremely sad. I understand locking the "campus", but I can't understand why a track needs to be locked.

I remember (granted over 15 years ago when I lived in NISD) that after work, I would join fellow employees and run a few miles around the track at one of the high schools. Older people, younger people, aka NEIGHBORS were out walking the track and socializing. For some of them, it was their only accessible "park" so to speak.

One of the things that my current neighborhood has really tried to do is make sure that the fields at our local high school stay open for usage by residents. I'll admit, SAISD doesn't always think about neighbors, so it has been a fight.

Wow guess the district really doesn't enforce it.. Going to Holmes high school during football practice it seemed like the whole neighborhood was out at the track. They still do to this day! I also go to warrens fields and run sprints on the fields and track with several people, not one faculty or district cop has stopped us. Hell one day a cop tracked Down a janitor to unlock the gate for us!
