Mueller’s Parks

Mueller’s parks, trails and open space weave through the community, establishing a native, local ecosystem and bringing outdoor recreation and education options to Mueller residents, employees and visitors. With 20 percent of the neighborhood dedicated to parkland and open space, every resident lives within 600 feet of a community greenspace. Mueller parks are open to the public and are host to several community events annually.

  • 5-mile hike and bike trail loop at completion
