The Arlington Parks and Recreation Department thanks all supporters, corporate sponsors and attendees that ensured another successful Independence Day celebration in the heart of downtown Arlington.


GOLD MEDAL NOMINATION Arlington earns finalist recognition for the industry's most prestigious honor for the fourth time in five years. The Arlington Parks and Recreation department (APRD) has been named a finalist for the 2018 National Gold Medal Award for Excellence in Park and Recreation Management, announced by the American Academy for Park and Recreation Administration (AAPRA), in partnership with the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA), on Thursday.

The other three finalists in Class II are Arlington County Department of Parks and Recreation (Arlington, Va.), Tampa Parks and Recreation Department (Tampa, Fla.) and Tualatin Hills Park & Recreation District (Beaverton, Ore). The Grand Plaque Award winner will be announced at the 2018 NRPA Annual Conference in Indianapolis, Ind., Sept. 25–27, 2018.

Founded in 1965, the Gold Medal Awards program honors communities in the U.S. that demonstrate excellence in parks and recreation through longrange planning, resource management, volunteerism, environmental stewardship, program development, professional development and agency recognition.

Agencies are judged on their ability to address the needs of those they serve through the collective energies of citizens, staff and elected officials.

Arlington Parks and Recreation is a finalist in the Class II category (population 150,001–400,000). The department was also named a finalist for the prestigious honor in 2014, 2016 and 2017. 10

"I am proud of the entire parks and recreation staff, park board, numerous advisory and volunteer groups, city management and the City Council for their tremendous support for the provision of parks and recreation services in our city", said Lemuel Randolph, director of parks and recreation. "The almost 400,000 citizens of Arlington directly benefit from the department's mission to

City of Arlington Parks and Recreation • N A T U R A L L Y F U N . O R G

provide quality facilities and services that are responsive to a diverse community and sustained with a focus on partnerships, innovation and environmental leadership. This NRPA Gold Medal Finalist designation is a true reflection of the critical alliance between City Council, department staff and our citizens." A panel of five park and recreation professionals reviews and judges all application materials. Judges are chosen for their considerable experience and knowledge in parks and recreation on both the local and national levels. Arlington released its 2018 gold medal application to the public, which can be viewed at gold. naturallyfun.org/. For more information on the Gold Medal Awards, visit: nrpa.org/goldmedal


AWARDS 'BETTER SPORTS FOR KIDS QUALITY PROGRAM PROVIDER' Arlington Parks and Recreation has been awarded the Better Sports for Kids Quality Program Provider designation by the National Alliance for Youth Sports.

CARTEGRAPH 2017-18 HIGH-PERFORMANCE GOVERNMENT AWARD WINNER

Earning the Better Sports for Kids Quality Program designation demonstrates that Arlington Parks and Recreation has taken steps to ensure a safe, quality playing environment for children. Arlington Parks and Recreation has proven it meets key requirements in five categories – Written Policies and Procedures, Volunteer Screening, Coach Training, Parent Education and Accountability. "Arlington Parks and Recreation recognizes that we have to actively demonstrate that we are providing youth sports programs of the highest standard," Wendy Parker, Athletics Director said. "Parents have many choices when it comes to youth sports so the Better Sports for Kids Quality Program Provider designation is important to our organization since it sets us apart from other agencies. It gives parents confidence in our programs since they can take comfort knowing their child is in the best place possible to learn and compete in sports." Arlington Parks and Recreation's designation is valid until December 31, 2019. For more information about the designation and the evaluation process, visit nays.org/quality.

TREE CITY USA The Tree City USA Program, sponsored by the Arbor Day Foundation, recognized Arlington for meeting the four core standards of sound urban forestry management. The four core standards include maintaining a tree board or department, having a community tree ordinance, spending at least $2 per capita on urban forestry, and celebrating Arbor Day. Tree City USA communities are home to more than 143 million Americans. Arlington has earned this recognition for the past 19 years.

Cartegraph’s High-Performance Government Awards celebrate the most forward-thinking, efficient organizations in local government. Through the use of modern technology, these organizations are finding ways to solve problems, work smarter, and improve their communities. With over 90 parks under its belt, estimating maintenance costs was a cumbersome and expensive process for the City of Arlington. Putting Cartegraph’s mobile inspection capabilities and built-in overall condition indexes to work, the Arlington team is now assessing and analyzing their infrastructure in real time, saving 4,100 hours or $62,000 in labor costs annually.

With park fees, bonds, and other sources of income, we’re able to renovate and create facilities to fit your needs. Arlington residents unanimously approved a package of bond projects that focus on streets, parks, fire facilities and libraries in the 2014 Bond Election.

NATHAN LOWE POCKET PARK OPEN The pocket park opened to public on May 10, 2018. On August 22nd 2017, City Council approved a construction agreement with Northstar Construction LLC for Nathan Lowe Park development in the amount of $233,500. Nathan Lowe Pocket Park is a 12.09-acre property located along the Fish Creek Linear Park system, in South Arlington, at the intersection of Tennessee Trail and Medina Dr.

The scope of this park development included construction of 6' wide concrete walkways around the playground area, playground equipment with integral shade canopies for two age groups (2-5 years old and 5-12 years old) with swings, benches, trash receptacles, landscape improvements and a park monument sign.

The playground is based on the concept of nature play and includes several features to encourage interactive, sensory and imaginative play. Safety surfacing was installed to provide shock absorbency around the playground areas. This pocket park development was made possible due to funding appropriated in the 2008 bond program.

RICHARD SIMPSON PARK CONSTRUCTION CONTINUES

With the new lake house stone facade complete, the project is now at 75% completion. Construction continues at Richard Simpson Park as contracters work to complete the lake house interior. Walls are being painted, plumbing fixtures will be installed and the interior ceiling grid installation is set to begin. Outside concrete walks and pedestrian bridge work to be complete as well as the park monument sign foundation. In 2015, the City Council directed staff to proceed with the design of phase one improvements to Richard Simpson Park. The design plans were completed June 2017 and presented to City Council for approval in August 2017 sealing a contract with Steele Freeman, Inc. This project aligns with the Arlington City Council priority to Champion Great Neighborhoods. The $3.5 million project has a contract time of 426 calendar days and a projected completion of December 16, 2018. 30

Construction is funded through the 2008 Bond Referendum and Arlington Tomorrow Foundation. Richard Simpson Park is a 9-acre city park on the shoreline of Lake Arlington. It is one of only two Arlington parks that provide public access to Lake Arlington for recreational usage. The 2008 Bond Election included $1 million to replace the existing Richard Simpson Park lake activity room and office, which was constructed in 1960. This building was used for a variety of rental and recreational activities and due to its location in the 100 year floodplain, physical conditions, and accessibility challenges, options for reinvesting in the structure were very limited.

City of Arlington Parks and Recreation • N A T U R A L L Y F U N . O R G

Since the park did not have an existing master plan, the project included site master planning, which included relocation of the lake activity room and office building to be elevated from the floodplain. With the park infrastructure being 30-plus years of age, the master plan also provides guidance for any future improvements as the City retires aging assets. Arlington Parks will continue to post monthly updates on this project at NaturallyFun.org. For more information about this project, contact Eric Seebock at Eric.Seebock@ArlingtonTX.gov.

RIVER LEGACY TRAIL EXTENSION Bridging the Gap: Arlington's River Legacy Trail Extension on pace for fall completion. Hikers, bikers and nature lovers in The American Dream City will soon have a longer trail to explore through Arlington’s beautiful River Legacy Parks. The City of Arlington recently completed installation of two pedestrian bridges that will help extend the popular 7-mile trail by another half-mile, stretching the path east to the Fort Worth city limits. The steel bridges – one that is 100 feet long and the other that is 140 feet long – span small tributaries running through the heavily wooded north Arlington park. Arlington’s $1.3 million trail extension, scheduled to be complete by September, will fill in one of the gaps in what will eventually become a 64-mile-long trail system along the Trinity River between Dallas and Fort Worth.

These pathways are designed to create inviting amenities for long-distance runners, cyclists, and others who enjoy the outdoors. The trail through River Legacy Parks, the crown jewel of Arlington’s park system, is currently the largest continuous section in the regional hike and bike trail system.

As part of its priority to Champion Great Neighborhoods, the Arlington City Council supports projects such as trails that are designed to improve the quality of life for residents. The trail connectivity between Fort Worth and Dallas will also help Enhance Regional Mobility, another City Council priority.

This future section of trail will extend north from the existing 7 Mile Marker in the River Legacy Parks, curve around the western side of Riverside Golf Club and continue east to end at the SH 360 right of way.

While most of the construction will be in River Legacy Parks, a portion of trail will run through Viridian, a residential community bordering the park.

A Transportation Alternative Program Grant from the Texas Department of Transportation is covering $461,532 of Arlington’s trail linkage project. The remaining portion is being paid for from the Arlington Parks and Recreation capital project budget. Naturally Fun Magazine • F A L L 2 0 1 8

URBAN FORESTRY PROJECT Over 25 trees were planted as part of this project. Continuing a tradition of leaving a positive green legacy in host communities, the NFL incorporated sustainability elements and activities at the 2018 NFL Draft. Three tree planting projects were funded through grants from the NFL and NFL sponsor Verizon to leave a permanent green footprint in North Texas.

The National Football League has incorporated sustainability practices and projects into the management of its events since 1993 – the first professional sports league to make environmental impact a key part of its event planning process. Verizon became the first NFL sponsor to engage in support of these projects five years ago.

On Monday, April 23, 2018 several dozen trees were planted at Brantley Hinshaw Park in Arlington, as part of a project coordinated with the Texas Trees Foundation. Volunteers from Verizon, local school children and Arlington Parks and Recreation employees came together for the event. Trees were planted along the park's walking path to provide muchneeded shade for the park's many patrons.

City of Arlington Parks and Recreation • N A T U R A L L Y F U N . O R G

Through this important partnership, thousands of new trees have been planted in event host communities, and various community gardens and pollinator habitats have been created. Verizon has also joined with the NFL to collect thousands of pounds of electronic waste (e-waste) from Super Bowl host communities to help people dispose of these items responsibly.


SOUTHEAST RECREATION CENTER CONSTRUCTION TO BEGIN The new Southeast Recreation Center will be built in Webb Community Park. Planners have begun the design phase of the new Southeast Recreation Center located at Webb Community Park.

The design process is expected to take until October 2018, and construction is planned for January 2019 to June 2020.

"The new recreation center in southeast Arlington is an amenity that the community has anticipated for a very long time," Parks Planning Manager De'Onna Garner said. "We believe that the center will activate the park site with dynamic indoor and outdoor spaces that will become a welcoming beacon for the residents. The department hopes that the new development will also provide a source of identity and pride for the community."

“We and the community are excited the Southeast Recreation Center," said Assistant Parks Director Venera FloresStafford. "It offers residents a common setting to congregate for socialization, recreation, and exercise. All of the centers are a core part of the fabric in the community, offering programming for the community’s youth to the active adult.”

Funding for the project is provided by the 2014 Bond Funds and will serve the southeast Arlington community.

EAST ARLINGTON REC CENTER & LIBRARY CONSTRUCTION TO BEGIN

A new co-facility will replace Hugh Smith Recreation Center and the East Arlington Branch Library.

Hugh Smith Recreation Center and the East Arlington Branch Library will remain open during the construction of a new facility operated through a partnership with Arlington Parks and Recreation and Arlington Libraries. Construction to set to begin January 2019 and be completed June 2020. The new facility will include a recreation and gym area, indoor pool, senior center, and library. "It's the first project of its type in Arlington Parks," Planning Manager De'Onna Garner said. The project is funded through both the 2008 and 2014 Bond Funds.

HARRIS ROAD PARK CONSTRUCTION PROGRESSES The Park is now 70% complete and the expected completion is early Fall 2018.

Construction continues at Harris Road Park Development in South Arlington. Contractors have installed playground equipment and the access driveway has been poured. Irrigation and electrical work are nearly complete. Construction began October 2017 through Northstar Construction LLC and the project is slated for completion as early as Fall 2018. The scope of this development includes a lighted parking lot with automated access gate, 8' wide concrete loop hike/bike trail, benches, picnic tables, playground, bicycle rack, drinking fountain, irrigation system, park entrance sign, and landscape improvements. The playground area will provide swings, play equipment for two age groups- 2-5 years and 5-12 years with integral shade. The project, located at 907 W.

DEAVER PARK IMPROVEMENTS

Deaver Park Improvements to begin soon and are expected to be complete early 2019. Renovations, which include a longer walking trail and new shaded playground equipment, will soon be under way at Deaver Park in southwest Arlington.

Phase 2, which includes improvements along the stream and pond corridor, is expected to be completed by the first quarter of 2020.

The Arlington City Council approved a $411,000 contract in June with Schmoldt Construction, Inc. of Celina for the park’s extensive makeover, expected to be complete by early 2019. Various sections of this 15.2-acre neighborhood park, located at 5800 Kelly Elliott Road, will be closed during construction. Arlington voters approved the park improvements during the 2014 bond election.

A SECOND PHASE WILL INCLUDE: • An overlook that will provide views over the restored natural area. This portion of the Deaver Park improvements will be constructed in conjunction with a Public Works stream restoration project along Kee Branch between Bradley Lane and Andalusia Trail.

The Public Works project is funded separately from the 2014 Bond Election program. The City saw an opportunity to reduce design and construction costs by joining similar adjacent projects. The Deaver Park improvements align with the Arlington City Council priority to Champion Great Neighborhoods. In November 2014, Arlington voters approved a five-year, $236 million dollar bond package. Projects included focus on street improvements, Parks & Rec, Fire Department facilities and City Libraries.

WORK IN THIS PHASE INCLUDES: • Extending the 10-foot-wide concrete trail around the east side of the stream that will begin to create a loop. • Replacing the two playground structures with playground equipment that is more accessible as well as shaded. • Separate Playground structures will be designed for ages 2-5 and for ages 5-12. • Swing sets will be installed for both age groups. • Replacing the drinking water fountain. and installing a new park monument sign.

Arlington Golf and the Texas Rangers announced a new partnership on Jan. 12, 2018, to create the world’s only Major League Baseball-branded golf course — the Texas Rangers Golf Club — which is scheduled to open later this year. This collaborative branding partnership, along with $24 million in course renovations, affords the opportunity for Arlington to offer a destination golf course not only for residents but for visitors to the Rangers ballpark, Texas Live! and other Entertainment District attractions. “As the world’s only MLB-themed golf course, this course is sure to be a ‘bucket list’ item for baseball fans across the globe, especially our Rangers fan right here in Arlington,” Mayor Jeff Williams said. The American Dream City’s newest golf course is located at Brown Boulevard and Collins Street in north Arlington. A new clubhouse, set to open in summer 2019, will feature a fullservice restaurant and bar, pro shop, multi-purpose rental and event space, and more.

It’s hard to find a more beautiful course than the award-winning Tierra Verde Golf Club. Tierra Verde is the first golf course in Texas, and the first municipal course in the world, to be certified as an Audubon Signature Sanctuary. Walk onto the first tee and enter an environment where golf and nature come together in harmony. Opened in 1998 and carved from 250 acres of secluded terrain, the course’s unsurpassed layout encompasses a variety of natural settings and offers an outstanding playing experience on every hole. The course has hosted many prestigious events, including the Byron Nelson Qualifying Tournament. Tierra Verde has been named the top golf course in the Metroplex for three years (2012-14) by AvidGolfer magazine.* Each hole has five sets of tees, sculpted fairways, strategically placed sand bunkers and water hazards - all accented by stately trees and beautiful native grasses. The facility features a state-of-the-art golf learning center, a lighted driving range, three-hole practice course and large chipping and putting green complex. Lessons and clinics are taught by PGA/LPGA professionals and apprentices, an outdoor pavilion and full-service restaurant, Ventana Grille, that complement every event from small corporate outings to large fundraising tournaments.

MEADOWBROOK PARK

GOLF COURSE 817-275-0221 1300 E. Dugan

fb.com/MeadowbrookParkGolfCourse

Arlington’s tradition of outstanding golf began in the 1920’s with Meadowbrook Park Golf Course. Conveniently located just east of downtown Arlington, the golf course provides an excellent choice for families and leagues. The golf course is the centerpiece of Arlington’s first city park. Arlington purchased the 52-acre site in 1923 and it was sponsored by the Arlington Rotary Club. The site includes picnic grounds and the tree-filled nine-hole golf course. Many of the holes feature vistas of nearby AT&T Stadium, home of the Dallas Cowboys. Meadowbrook Park is the perfect facility to learn golf and sharpen short-game skills. The 9-Hole, par-33 layout consists of six par 4s, 250 to 300 yards in length, and three par 3s, approximately 150 yards in length. The course can be easily walked or played under time constraints and has a long-standing commitment to beginning adult and junior golfers. Golf legends Ben Hogan and Byron Nelson once led golf clinics here. Its small greens and narrow fairways are designed to challenge every level of player. The clubhouse offers a full line pro shop, concessions, and golf cart rentals. Exclusive facility rental opportunities are available for both golf and non-golf outdoor activities. With a long-standing commitment to environmental enhancement and preservation, Meadowbrook Park Golf Course is like a walk in the park for the whole family! 64

CELEBRATING 10 YEARS OF MUSIC UNDER THE STARS! The Levitt Pavilion for the Performing Arts in Arlington presents more than 50 free outdoor concerts a year with a broad-based concert calendar of professional musical artists, from world music to jazz and home-grown Texas country to hot, indie artists. The Levitt presents original artists, many of them Grammy Award winners. The Levitt’s weekly Family Movie Nights feature movies suitable for all ages. Last concert season, the Levitt Pavilion attracted more than 130,000 people to Downtown Arlington. The Levitt Pavilion experience is about building community as families, school groups, entire neighborhoods and people from all parts of our area join side by side in a safe, fun, casual atmosphere to enjoy live music together.
