4 | Wylie Parks & Recreation | Activity Menu | Sept - Dec 2017 | QUESTIONS? TWEET US! @WYLIERECREATION


RUN WALK BIKE HIKE

THE SECOND PHASE OF THE MUNICIPAL COMPLEX TRAIL, EAST MEADOW, IS NOW COMPLETE. This fall, visitors will have an additional 1.5 miles of trail to explore; the new portion connects to the existing Municipal Complex Trail. East Meadow Trail will connect visitors from the Creekhollow Estates to the Municipal Complex Trail, which already provides access from Country Club Road to Brown Street and meanders behind City Hall, Wylie Recreation Center, and Smith Public Library. This new addition of trail features an 8-foot-wide boardwalk that connects Creekhollow Estates to the East Meadow and on to the Municipal Complex. The southeast corner of the trail has a creek overlook area providing visitors an opportunity to explore a tributary of Muddy Creek. The far south end of the trail winds through the woods and runs parallel to railroad tracks. In addition to the new features East Meadow Trail has to offer, there is also a 29-space parking lot located off of West Brown Street. Visitors will have the opportunity to relax and enjoy nature with several rest areas featuring benches and pet stations placed throughout the trail. A nature path cuts across the meadow from the existing Municipal Trail to the boardwalk going into Creekhollow Estates.

EAST MEADOW - SOUTH END Pedestrian connectivity to the complex is a high priority for the City of Wylie. The City’s 2012 Trails Master Plan identified the area near FM 544 and Country Club Road, as well as the East Meadow, as a major trail gateway and intersection. The East Meadow Trail will prove to be an important component of the trail system in years to come. This section will not only connect more visitors to the existing trail, but it will continue to promote the vibrant and active Municipal Complex as a quality location for events, civic activities, and recreation. Construction of the East Meadow Trail has been funded in part by the Collin County Parks and Open Space Program and the City of Wylie’s Park Land Acquisition and Improvement. Cost total approximately $950,000. EAST MEADOW TRAIL CONCEPT PLAN ON PAGE 32

EUREKA PARK

351 RUTHERFORD AVENUE The new and improved playground at Eureka Park is definitely a site to see. This playground was installed by the Parks and Recreation Department in the spring of 2017. The vibrant blue colors and countless climbers and slides make this structure a real community gem. The playground also offers a new spinner and offstructure climber, so that not all the fun is had on the play structure. With a picnic pavilion, basketball court, cooking grills, and a halfmile walking trail, this park has something for everyone.

VETERANS MEMORIAL 112 S BALLARD AVENUE

Olde City Park is home to our Veterans Memorial, which is managed by American Legion HaleCombest Post 315 Wylie, Texas. During the spring of 2017 the Veterans Memorial underwent a series of improvements. Members of the American Legion installed new and improved memorial stones, contractors built a beautiful stone wall behind the memorial while adding aesthetics to the center with stamped and stained concrete. The Parks and Recreation Division enhanced the site with many landscaping upgrades, including a decorative fence around the new stones. Next time you’re at Olde City Park to enjoy the new playground, hosting a birthday party, or simply taking a stroll along the walking trail, take a minute to honor those who have served our country so bravely.
