Beginning Monday, Dec. 19, trail replacement work will begin at Sunrise Park, 1809 E. Union Bower Road. This project is expected to be completed by the end of spring 2017.
All existing asphalt trail will be replaced with 9-foot wide concrete pavement. In addition, an accessible ramp at the parking lot, three new exercise stations and new benches along the trail and parking area will be added. All existing exercise stations will be removed during the work.
During construction, portions of the walking trail and playgrounds will remain open for use. However, patrons are advised to avoid construction barricades and areas of current construction activities.
The Irving Community Television Network's "City Source" program recently highlighted the work being done at Sunrise Park:
A lighting upgrade at the basketball and tennis courts was completed recently, and additional lighting upgrades to the parking lot area are planned.
