Trail - .33 mile loop, gravel and concrete (includes sidewalk)
Trails like the one in Lange Park are incorporated into park design to provide a place for park neighbors to get exercise by walking or jogging. Three times around the trail loop at Lange Park, which includes the sidewalk along Smiley Lane, makes a mile.
During non-school hours, the 400-meter track located on the northwest corner of Lange Middle School property is open to the public. Both the track and park development were funded by the Park Sales Tax. The City has a co-operative use agreement with Columbia Public Schools for the park improvements developed on the school property.
