Fourth Photo Contest Winners Announced

The morning was exciting at Dallas City Hall as the winners of the 2012 Trinity River Photo Contest were announced and awarded their prizes and participation certificates. 

Family, friends, teachers, and principals accompanied the winners for a continental breakfast and award ceremony with the Dallas City Council.  The event was led by the chair of the Trinity River Corridor Project Committee, Councilmember Vonciel Jones Hill.

Michael Hamtil, photo editor of the Dallas Morning News, was the lead judge who organized the group of four judges who selected the winning images. In a change of timing, the 62 winning images debuted at NorthPark Center earlier at the beginning of February.

The judging panel reviewed over 500 photos selecting an expansive Grand Prize and awarding 1st, 2nd 3rd, place and Honorable Mention winners. Visit the Home Page of trinityriver corridor.com to see all the winners.

Get Ready Get Set… Run!

The challenge is on not just for the Dallas Fire-Rescue Department and Dallas Police Department runners to compete in the friendly rivalry of the Glenn Carter Safety Challenge trophy, but for thousands of other runners to race in the 9th MWH Global Trinity River Levee Run on March 2, 2013! 

The race provides a full schedule of events launching a day long opportunity to come out and meet at the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge for fun and outdoor adventure.

The long-time race producers, the Trinity Commons Foundation, Dallas Running Club and the City of Dallas supported by dedicated event suppliers, Luke’s Locker and Ben E. Keith, have again added the Trinity Invitational Sprint to the lineup for the race at 7:45 a.m. on March 2.  Sprinters will be running with wings on their heels across the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge from the east side down to the finish line at Gulden Street and Singleton Boulevard in an 800 meter straight-line dash.

At 8:00 a.m., the 10K and 5K begins on the race route that is USATF Certified taking the runners across the bridge and into the design district and back. Dallas Councilmember Monica Alonzo will office the morning’s activities cheering the runners to victory.

 

Meet Me at the Bridge

When it’s open, let’s run, walk, stretch, and photograph it all day long!  We’re talking about the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge open until 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, March 2.  The day offers a chance to celebrate the new restaurants and businesses open on the west side of the bridge as well as to see the Rollin Oldies Car Club’s show staged at the Four Corners Brewing Co.

There will be two chances to participate in Yoga on the Bridge sponsored by West Dallas Chamber and the Trinity Commons Foundation. The afternoon yoga class gives families with children a chance to strike a pose on the beautiful steel bridge with the city of Dallas skyline as a perfect backdrop. Then Line dance to the electric sounds of music and watch it all on the feedback screens at the festival area located on the corner of Gulden and Singleton Boulevard.

Tweet, Facebook, call, write, or yell across the street inviting your families, friends, neighbors, and co-workers to Meet you at the Bridge! To find out about all the action visit runthetrinity.com.

 

Staff Day of Service

Many groups are coming to the Trinity River Corridor Project out of curiosity or with some idea of the vast public landscape that requires constant care to keep it looking sharp. The Dallas County Community College District began working with Groundwork Dallas and the City in 2012 with their “Be the Change” event and their interest in the corridor continued on a cold day in February.

Forty faculty and administrative staff spent a windy morning clearing silt fencing and other debris from along the new Trinity Trail Phase II.  The trailhead of this beautiful concrete trail is located on Trinity River Audubon Center property. This new trail access into the Trinity River corridor provides over two miles of hiking and biking trail through restored Blackland Prairie landscapes, woodland alleys and across the river on a new bridge crossing. Visit trinityrivercorridor.com and explore the Trinity!

The debris cleared by the DCCCD Staff Day of Service was mostly metal, fencing, pcv pipes, and even part of an old toilet!
