Pink Evening Primrose Trail

Pink Evening Primrose Trail

Segment 1 of the Pink Evening Primrose Trail was completed fall of 2019. The 8' wide concrete trail connects the below grade crossing at Morriss Road that connects to the Riverwalk development. It meanders through the open field and runs behind the daycare facility to Timber Creek Road. It proceeds north along the west side of Timber Creek Road to College and then on up to connect to the existing 8' trail behind Lamar Middle School.

The project includes a new interior loop trail that includes benches overlooking the pond, new basketball striping with courtside benches, ADA compliance improvements, and irrigation for the practice field. Additional improvements include a section of wrought iron fencing at the pond and new trees with irrigation. Irrigation installation is complete, and final punch list items are in progress. These improvements were completed in fall of 2019.
