"This will be the nineteenth sculpture to be placed with the trail," Assistant Director Gary Packan said. Funding for the sculpture and installation comes from the hotel occupancy tax. Additional sculptures will also be placed with Dr Robert Cluck Linear Park in the future. A total of 15-20 sculpture pods will be located within along the trail when completed. "It will take 8-10 months for the sculpture to be completed and installed" added Packan. Naturally Fun Magazine • S P R I N G 2 0 1 8

CONSTRUCTION AT EDEN ROAD PARK COMPLETED Park's new playground, pavilion, and other facilities are open and ready for use. A park dedication is planned for Spring 2018.

E

den Road Park in Southeast Arlington opened for use October 14, 2017.

The new park, located at 1860 Mansfield Road, includes a group picnic pavilion with grill, a playground, an open play space, picnic tables, and benches. Visitors can also enjoy viewing wildflower meadow areas from the looped walking trail. The park also features a 20-space parking lot. "The park has been in the planning stage for many years," Park Project Manager Eric Seebock said. "The neighborhood is very excited to see the final finishing touches on the construction and ready to use the park." Construction work on Eden Road Park began in January and was originally expected to be complete by June. However, due to a delay in park equipment delivery, the project was not complete until October. 28

The $930,800 project, built by 2L Construction, LLC., was paid for through park impact fees. The new park space and its amenities align with the Arlington City Council priority to Champion Great Neighborhoods. "As Arlington continues to grow to the Southeast the new park is a welcome addition to the area," Seebock Said. A park dedication is proposed for Spring 2018, more information to come. For questions, please contact Park Project Manager, Eric Seebock at Eric.Seebock@Arlingtontx.gov.

CONSTRUCTION BEGINS AT RICHARD SIMPSON PARK Phase one construction began October 26, 2017 with the installation of a green wire construction fences and job trailer.

R

ichard 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 park is named after Richard W. Simpson, a lifetime resident of Arlington who served on the Arlington Police Department's Special Tactical Unit and as Lake Officer for 13 years. Simpson was known for his tireless work around Lake Arlington and rare ability to be a friend to anyone in need. During his tenure as Lake Officer he received three lifesaving awards for his service to the community.

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. The 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 December16, 2018. Construction is funded through the 2008 Bond Referendum and Arlington Tomorrow Foundation. The 2008 Bond Election included $1 million to replace the existing Richard Simpson Park lake activity room and office, which was constructed in 1960.

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


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. 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 where it can 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 retire aging assets. Construction will begin with the demolition of parking lot paving and soil excavation for the new Lake House. Arlington Parks will post monthly updates on this project at NaturallyFun.org. For more information about this project, contact Eric Seebock at 817-459-5489 or Eric.Seebock@ArlingtonTX.gov.

MEDIAN IMPROVEMENTS FUNDED THROUGH GREEN RIBBON GRANT Construction to Pioneer Parkway/Spur 303 median will enhance aesthetic, urban tree canopy, and minimize air pollution.

A

rlington was awarded a Green Ribbon Grant by the Texas Department of Transportation for landscaping and irrigation improvements to the central median of Pioneer Parkway/State Highway 303. Pioneer Parkway/Spur 303 functions as an important east-west transportation corridor within Arlington. The project includes a 10-mile span of construction to enhance the aesthetic of the highway, increase urban tree canopy cover and minimize urban air pollution. Improvements include landscape beds with permanent irrigation systems and native plants, ornamental trees, drought-tolerant grasses, shrubs, and 75 shade trees. Workers finished planting trees within the median Tuesday, October 24. After that time, the contractor, C. Green Scaping LP, will continue planting the plant beds within the median at several locations on Pioneer Parkway. "In 2008 we began 'Green the Oaks', a program which kicked off a beautification initiative of Green Oaks Blvd," Assistant Director Gary Packan said. "'Green the Oaks' is focused on greening up medians, on 22 miles of Green Oaks Blvd., which started on a section between Cooper St. and Bowen Rd." The Pioneer Parkway Green Ribbon project continues that initiative thanks to our partners at TXDOT Packan said. The Parks and Recreation Department has planted thousands of trees since 2008 and will continue to beautify the city utilizing grant funds when available.

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

Construction began in late March and is expected to be substantially complete early January 2018. The project will exclude medians that reside within the City of Pantego. On November 10, 2015, the City Council passed minute order, authorizing the execution of a Local Project Advance Funding Agreement with TxDOT of Fort Worth for Supplemental Transportation Program Green Ribbon Project in the amount of $400,000. As the project design progressed, planners realized additional funding would be necessary to include enhancements at key locations. TxDOT approved a request for an additional $150,000 on August 8, 2016 bringing the total of the grant to $550,000. "We are pleased to have received additional funding from TxDOT," Park Project Manager Mitali Mandlekar said. "This has allowed us to include enhancements at key intersections and add more shade trees along the highway." For additional information contact Park Project Manager, Mitali Mandlekar at 817-459-5478 or Mitali.mandlekar@arlington.gov

Lake Arlington Golf Course is a beautiful, 18-hole facility nestled on 185 acres on the north shore of Lake Arlington. The course was designed with all types of players in mind. With the newly renovated fairways and greens, the course provides a great golfing experience at an exceptional value. Lake Arlington’s time-honored design blends open and tree-lined fairways, long challenging par 3’s and scenic greens to appeal to every level of player. A challenge for the professional as well as the beginner, the four sets of tees, ranging from 5,485 yards to 6,637 yards, provides a fair playing field that appeals to every level. The clubhouse features a well stocked pro shop and grill. Lake Arlington’s combination of enjoyable golf, convenient location and professional staff create the perfect setting for group outings and tournaments. The course offers challenging golf along with a practice putting green and chipping area at an exceptional value. A Ralph Plummer design, the course was renovated in 1998 and celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2013. Avid Golfer voted Lake Arlington the most kid-friendly course in DFW in 2013, while the layout garnered a Top-50 public course ranking in the publication too. PGA Head Professional Michael Berneburg and his staff offer golf lessons for all ages and ability levels. Call 817-451-6101 for rates and availability.

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! Play Footgolf Wednesdays and Sundays for the discounted rate of $5 per person.

LEVEL ASSESSMENT The City of Arlington’s Learn to Swim Program follows the American Red Cross Swim and Water Safety Program. We assess each child on the first day of class to help with accurate placement of the child in the correct level. If possible, we will move the child to a level that best suits his or her skill level. If a child is registered in the incorrect class, every effort will be made to place them into a class of an appropriate level but cannot be guaranteed. We ask parents to help assist us by registering their child in the correct level by talking to their child’s instructor at the end of the session and/or following the guidelines below. Turn to page 73 for the 6-12 year old level assessment.

FREE 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 118,000 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. Many of these families and groups would not have the opportunity to experience the magic of live music if they had to pay ticket prices. The Levitt Pavilion gives our community an accessible gathering place for free music open to everyone – all ages, all ethnicities, all neighborhoods and all income levels. Levitt Pavilion Arlington brings music and the performing arts to Arlington in a way thousands are responding to – available for everyone to enjoy under the stars.

KAB members strongly encourage community involvement and environmental stewardship. Become part of why Arlington is the American Dream City by getting involved in volunteer efforts, attending local environmental classes, becoming a Board member and liking us on Facebook. In 2014, the Arlington Parks and Recreation Department and Keep Arlington Beautiful logged 58 volunteer events performed by 3,900 volunteers. This year the volume of volunteer commitment has significantly increased, estimating figures to double by the end of 2015, meaning great things for the City of Arlington. Keep Arlington Beautiful is entering a challenging and exciting time, as economic pressures on our City increases, and the demand for our services continues to rise.

As the program gains momentum, KAB encourages community members to take action and join in the mission to Keep Arlington Beautiful.

The City of Arlington introduced a new program to help fight litter and beautify the City. The Mobile Litter Unit is a trailer loaded with community clean-up supplies that is available for organizations, businesses and neighborhoods to reserve free of charge to aid in beautification. Along with this program, KAB and the City of Arlington launched a pilot Adopt- a-Spot Program in July 2015, to focus on public spaces, parks, trails, and right-of–ways. Under KAB’s plan, civic groups, schools, business, neighborhood associations and other organizations within the city limits of Arlington can apply Naturally Fun Magazine • S P R I N G 2 0 1 8
