Moore Park Gateway Construction
Drive by 1837 E. 8th Street and you will find an unusual configuration of architectural walls, a cantilevered overlook and the beginning of a new bridge across Cedar Creek. Moore Park is an 80 year old park in Dallas that is getting a face lift and part of this update is a link into the Trinity River Corridor. When complete later this year, the park will feature an impressive pavilion with icon tower, a series of attractive architectural walls, pedestrian bridge across Cedar Creek, an elevated meditation tree grove, grass Amphitheater, access to the Santa Fe Trestle Trail, and lit parking shared with DART.
Recent construction milestones include the building of the 25’ cantilevered overlook that is an integral part of the new pavilion, preparation for the pavilion’s pilaster concrete pour, installation of the pedestrian bridge base, irrigation for the tree grove, preparations for the catwalk between the pavilion and tree grove, and temporary safety rails installed on the cantilevered overlook. Massana Construction is on the move!

Meet Me at the Bridge
One year ago, the new Santiago Calatrava designed bridge was the talk of the town and this year is no different. Who will you meet at the bridge? Invite all of your family, friends, co-workers, and neighbors to meet you there from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The bridge will be open to pedestrians after the run.
Chill out on the bridge with Yoga on the Bridge in the afternoon. Classes will be available for beginners and experienced student of Yoga for $5 (yogaonthebridge.com) and the event is made possible by the City of Dallas, Claire Vista Vitality Club Trinity Commons Foundation, Elettore, SYNC Yoga and Well Being, Uptown Yoga, West Dallas Chamber, and YMCA.
If sleek fenders and the smell of old leather is your forte rather than stretching, then stroll through the rows of classic cars from the Rollin’ Oldies Car Club with the exhibit made possible by Trinity Groves. The beautiful cars can be seen at Four Corner’s Brewery.
Meet the day with fun, action and adventure in West Dallas by the Trinity River!
Great Trinity Forest Southern Gateway and Horse Trails
2161 Dowdy Ferry Road, Dallas, TX 75217
A new forest gateway with horse trails is nearing completion on an existing natural resource near IH-20 and Dowdy Ferry Road. At this location sits a small but beautiful natural lake that has been a favorite spot for local fisherman and horseback riders.
Through the Trinity River Corridor Project, a large gravel parking lot for horse trailer parking and improved gravel entry road is ready for visitors. In addition, a fishing pier, trail around the lake, picnic pavilions, and some of the most useful but also beautiful products of nature, trees, thrive in this portion of the Great Trinity Forest.
