Would Rockport be a good match for me? For principal exercise, I like to do two to five miles of trail or resilient-surface track running each day. Are there parks with trails within ten to fifteen minutes of Rockport where I could do such running, or a high school or college track that isn't paved?

Memorial park has a trail that's pretty nice and lots of people go running. Others run along water street - it has a few cars but a nice view. The upper part of Fulton Beach Rd would be nice too.

Thanks for your helpful reply. I'm using Google maps to study the three sites you mention above.

Memorial Park looks pretty small. Fulton Beach Rd looks like it's paved, unless one runs along the beach. Water St also looks paved.

Am I right on these perceptions-from-afar?

Memorial park has a nice running path all the way around its the one across from the post office and definitely your best bet. It looks small but the path goes into and around that forested part.

I like to race my doggie in my neighborhood. She won the first 100 races but then for the next 50 races I tried talking smack to her. "those extra two legs will slow you down" "How can you win carrying that tail with you?". Result Doggie 150 me 0. My kids do no better - but they are smart enough not to keep score.

Bet you a lunch you can't beat her! By the way she's half Italian Greyhound and half Whippet. LOL

The streets are paved. Here is something I found "Hit the Trails - a. Goose Island State Park is great place for a bike ride or to take a short nature hike. Connie Hagar Cottage Sanctuary has natures and Memorial Park has walking/jogging trails with exercise stations and rest rooms. We like to roam the city by bike and visit the Maritime Museum and Memorial park, ride out to Key Allegro to check out the homes along the water and stop at Paradise Key Island Grill for an appetizer, cold drink, lunch or dinner"

The city of Rockport Parks Dept can give you details but its really an ok place to run, although I'm far from an expert or even a decent runner (doggie requested that disclaimer).

Only if you like running on hard surfaces, rather than trails, I presume.
