9th MWH Trinity River Levee Run

Hey Dallas! Are you signed up for a day of racing and fun at the 9th MWH Trinity River Levee Run? There’s plenty of time to get your race bib reserved at

MWH Global returns as the title sponsor for the third year providing their support and staff participation. This year’s event kicks off with the Trinity Invitational Sprint featuring North Texas High School’s fastest runners.

The full lineup of events also includes the 10K, 5K, 2 mile run/walk, and the

specialty event, the Glenn Carter Safety Challenge which is the race for the trophy between Dallas’ Fire-Rescue and Police departments. It’s been a while since the Dallas Police took home the trophy and rumors are strong that they are training to be the fastest this year.

March’s featured event for the Dallas Running Club provides chip timing, technical running shirts, a race route across the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge and into the Design District, plus a fun award ceremony with nice giveaways.

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!

View the latest construction progress.


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 ( 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.
