The canoe launch at T.W. Richardson Park, as well as the sidewalk along the area, will be closed indefinitely. Due to continued heavy rainfall this year, the Trinity River has washed away much of the embankment along this section of Campion Trail. This erosion has created a safety hazard for boaters and nature lovers along this section of the river.
Parks staff, along with a private engineering firm, are currently evaluating the situation and addressing the likelihood of re-constructing the entire area.
The jogging trail will remain open for public use, except for the area where work is being done. For more information, contact the Parks and Recreation Department at (972) 721-2501.
