MARTHA WALKER PARK CONSTRUCTION COMPLETE 7509 Sharon Lee Dr. Arlington, TX 76001

A

rlington Parks and Recreation unveiled the new construction of Martha Walker Park during a ceremony in October. The park has new playground and fitness equipment and new hike and bike concrete trails that give patrons the opportunity to explore the wooded and open areas of the park. It is named after Martha Walker, the city’s first female City Council Member, serving from 1972 to 1982, who is an instrumental part of the city’s success. Walker helped found the Fielder Museum, helped plan the Fourth of July celebration in 1974 to 1976 and volunteered in various church, school and Chamber of Commerce activities. “My wish is for children of all ages to enjoy the park,” Martha Walker said. “Thank you, Arlington.” Martha Walker Park is located in southwest Arlington at 7509 Sharon Lee Dr. The 13-acre, heavily wooded site is now open and ready to be explored. A special groundbreaking ceremony was held on December 17, 2015 after the project was approved by the City Council in November 2015. This project is part of the Arlington City Council’s priority to Champion Great Neighborhoods.

MIRACLE LEAGUE FIELD RENOVATIONS COMPLETE 1901 West Randol Mill Rd. Arlington, TX 76012

C

onstruction of The Miracle Field at Randol Mill Park was completed in September allowing athletes with special needs to play softball and baseball. The original field was replaced with a concrete subsurface and a Pebbleflex top surface that’s soft and safe for falls, but firm enough to allow for wheelchair and walker use. The construction also included new standing seam metal roofs for shade structures. The field was designed to fit The Miracle League specifications and to be inclusive to players of all abilities. The Miracle League utilizes volunteers to help athletes during the game. For more info about volunteering, contact Grace Whetstone at 817-501-1942 or at Grace@MiracleLeagueDFW.org.

RUSH CREEK DOG PARK CONSTRUCTION STARTED 1926 Valleywood Dr. Arlington, TX 76013

C

onstruction has begun on the Rush Creek Dog Park in west Arlington and is on schedule to be completed in Spring 2017. The seven-acre park will feature water fountains, dog wash stations, shaded seating areas and four fenced-in off-leash play areas. This will be the City’s second dog park, the first, Tails ‘N Trails Dog Park also features off-leash areas, water fountains and other amenities. But unlike Tails ‘N Trails, Rush Creek will have an area for dog birthday parties, weddings, dog training or other canine-centric private events.

The Tails ‘N Trails dog park, located at 950 SE Green Oaks Blvd. behind the Arlington Animal Services Center, has been open since 2007. The southeast Arlington park’s usage by dog owners from across the city has been consistently high, Randolph said.

“We have seen a lot of friendships and relationships bloom through the existing dog park and we’ve had a consistent demand for this type of service throughout the city,”

“People’s affinity for dogs is pretty strong. So many folks treat their dogs as family members, so that connection really brings about an environment where dog owners are looking for opportunities not only for their dogs to socialize but also for themselves,” Randolph said.

Randolph said the old dog park has improved “We’re really excited about this amenity, the community. which we are starting to see more of in the parks and recreation industry,” Parks “We have seen a lot of friendships and and Recreation Director Lemuel Randolph relationships bloom through the existing said. “We certainly believe there is a -Parks and Recreation dog parkand we’ve had a consistent demand demand for it. We know people pay for Director Lemuel Randolph for this type of service throughout the city,” party services for dog events. Why not Randolph said. the City? It’s a way for the City to recoup some of the costs for operating the dog park as well.” For information and updates about this and other capital improvement projects, visit NaturallyFun.org. On June 28, 2016 the Arlington City Council approved a construction contract of up to $722,000 with Encino Landscape, Inc. to build the park. Arlington voters approved $500,000 for the project in the 2014 bond election. The For additional information, visit NaturallyFun.org rest of the construction funding comes from park user fees or contact Eric Seebock at Eric.Seebock@arlingtontx.gov. collected by the Parks and Recreation Department. Construction will last about 150 days and Arlington Parks and Recreation will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony this spring.

JULIA BURGEN PARK DEVELOPMENT (PHASE 1) 1299 S Mesquite St Arlington, TX 76010

F

eaturing a shaded playground and a concrete hike and bike trail along Johnson Creek, the long anticipated Julia Burgen Park in central Arlington is on schedule to open April 2017. Construction of the Phase I park improvements for the 66-acre linear park will offer nearly a mile-long hike and bike trail, about two dozen parking spaces, park benches, a covered playground for ages 2-5 and 5-12, swings, a bike rack and a pavilion available for rent. The park’s main entrance will be on Ruby Street, south of Mitchell Street. As part of the Johnson Creek Corridor Plan, Arlington plans to eventually create a series of linked linear parks that stretch from Gateway Park near the Parks at Arlington Mall up to the Richard Greene Linear Park near AT&T Stadium and Globe Life Park. The Julia Burgen Park will help eventually close the gap between Vandergriff Park and Meadowbrook Park. Parks along creeks and rivers benefit people, wildlife and help preserve those corridors, Mandlekar said. The park is named for former Arlington City Council member Julia Burgen, well-known for her environmental activism. “Julia Burgen dramatically increased the environmental awareness of the overall community and the political community – from protections we have now for trees to expanded landscaping requirements,” said Donna Darovich, Parks and Recreation Board Chair.

CONSTRUCTION UPDATE: The old streets and infrastructure has been removed. The understory brush removal, clean up is in process in order to maintain clear visibility into the park from the adjoining areas Trails construction is complete Contractor is working on installing a new pavilion, new playground area for 2 age groups, drinking water fountain, irrigation, site furnishings and much more. A new concrete parking lot has been poured at Ruby Street

CHESTER DITTO CLOSES FOR RENOVATIONS A total course renovation, under the direction of famed course architect John Colligan, commenced at Ditto Golf Course in mid December. The facility is expected to remain closed until late fall 2017 for the renovation. The renovation will include a complete re-routing of the facility, improved turf grasses for the new tees and greens complexes, new bunkers and many other updated aspects which will benefit all golfers. Colligan will also oversee the expansion of the water collection/retention pond, and the planting of drought tolerant species, to aid in irrigation efforts and water savings. The new layout will stretch to 7,000 yards for low-handicap golfers and potential collegiate events, and will feature five sets of tees to ensure a great playing experience for golfers of all ability levels. An expanded driving range and practice facility will also allow for additional private instruction and group lessons for both adults and junior golfers. Colligan Golf Design, headquartered in Arlington, has overseen many notable course renovations including recent projects at Stevens Park Golf Course, Squaw Creek Golf Course, Brackenridge Park Golf Course, Stonebriar Country Club and Oklahoma City Golf & Country Club. Stevens Park jumped to No. 18 in Golfweek's ranking of the best municipal courses in the U.S. following Colligan's work. 62

Assisting Colligan on the renovation is Trey Kemp, who has worked with Colligan Golf Design since 2007 and is responsible for all phases of design, construction documents and construction observation. Financing of the renovation will come from a variety of sources, including 2008 & 2014 bond funds and debt service.

Area golfers are encouraged to visit Tierra Verde, Lake Arlington and Meadowbrook Park Golf Course during the closure. For additional info on the project, visit ArlingtonGolf.com.

MEADOWBROOK PARK

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

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!

KEEP ARLINGTON

BEAUTIFUL KeepArlingtonBeautiful.com

The mission of Keep Arlington Beautiful (KAB), Gold Star Affiliate of Keep Texas Beautiful, is to educate and engage the Arlington community to take responsibility for improving their environment. 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. The tradition of high quality service provision and activism related to litter abatement, beautification, and awareness to the residents of the City of Arlington is evident in KAB’s work.

Keep Arlington Beautiful

neighborhood associations and other organizations within the city limits of Arlington can apply to “adopt” an area that is convenient to them or that they use on a frequent basis that needs periodic clean-up. As the program gains momentum, KAB encourages community members to take action and join in the mission to Keep Arlington Beautiful. For more information on our volunteer opportunities, please visit our web page, the volunteer tab of our Facebook page or email KAB@arlingtontx.gov! To reserve the Mobile Litter Unit for your next community clean up, or to learn more about Adopt-a-Spot, email KAB@arlingtontx.gov or call 817-459-5477

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.

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 morning Children’s Concerts include fun, interactive shows and weekly Family Movie Nights feature movies suitable for all ages. Last concert season, the Levitt Pavilion attracted more than 115,000 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 to everyone to enjoy under the stars.
