Dam construction update: starting on June 1, LLELA visitors will not be able to cross the outlet works. There will be no access to the Bittern Marsh Trail or east side of the river. Sometime soon (date currently unknown), all access east of the Cicada Pavilion will be prohibited for about 8 weeks. This will include the following areas and trails: Bittern Marsh Trail, kayaking and fishing in the Elm Fork of the Trinity River, all camping areas, and the Redbud Trail. Only the Blackjack, Green Dragon, Cottonwood, and Cicada Trails will be open during that time.

In 2015, REI made a game changing decision to close its doors on Black Friday and instead spent that time doing what they love: exploring our greenspaces. #OptOutside and join us for a midnight moonlit hike through your favorite urban wilderness! The cost is $5 per person and registration is required. Use this link to reserve your space or call the Parks and Recreation Administration office at 972.219.3550, Mondays-Thursdays from 7:30 am- 5:30 pm and Fridays from 7:30-11:30 am to register.
