Stevens Park Pavilion Update
The area on the south side of Colorado at the pavilion has been an unsightly mess. KNU inquired about erosion control efforts by the City and were informed that the original plan proved ineffective. The City has prepared a new plan and approved $400,000 additional dollars for the project. Work will resume after the Labor Day holiday and the timeline for completion is December 2019, weather permitting. The site will be landscaped and restored to its original condition.

Other Beautification Upgrades
A flagstone pad was installed in front of the sitting bench on the Montclair/Argonne Island, and the tree lights on the Colorado/Kessler Pkwy island were updated with new bulbs to highlight landscape and provide safety light at night. Go Beautification Committee! See Snapshots sections.
North Oak Cliff Greenspace (NOCGS) Update
The yucca bed on the corner of Clinton and Kessler Parkway was cleared of trees and poison ivy. Itchy! A special thanks to Jim Henderson and crew for beautifying the trail that borders KNU! See Snapshots section.
