Cottonwood Trail Esplanade Dedication June 3rd

Submitted by on May 29, 2010 – 7:58 pm7 Comments

Construction for the Cottonwood trail is scheduled to be finished in May.  So Thursday, June 3rd, at 10am they are having a dedication ceremony at the Esplanade, which is an amazing piece of work by itself.

From the organizers:

Mark your calendar to join us for the dedication of the beautiful esplanade  for the Cottonwood Creek Trail.  Park your car at Hamilton Park’s Willie B. Johnson Recreation Center (map) and walk down to join us down at the esplanade as we celebrate the completion of this beautiful connection spot for the Cottonwood Trail.  We will have a short dedication ceremony to thank those who helped make this possible and share in some light refreshments.

We’re going to ride the trail to get to the ceremony!  Even though the event is on a Thursday, we’ll be riding bikes to the event.  We’ll probably meet at the Spring Valley – Maham road entrance.  I’ll post those details a couple of weeks prior to the dedication.  There is also a DART station nearby so we’ll publish those details too.

There should be a good showing of city (Dallas and Richardson) and county officials and staff at this event, not to mention the many companies like TI who helped fund it will have representatives there too.  It’s a less than ideal day but hopefully we can get a good showing of cyclists there.  Please pass the word to everyone you know who rides a bike.

In the meantime, enjoy this very cool Cottonwood trail video of the ride up under the High-5 shot by a DORBA member who goes by LVS.  In the video he’s traveling east, up under Central from Maham road, and then south, under LBJ.  The trail will join the White Rock Creek trail to the south, and the Preston Ridge trail to the north.  So the video demonstrates what the ride from Preston Ridge to the White Rock Creek would be like.

Chris started riding a bike again when he noticed the Preston Ridge Trail being constructed across the street from his house. Since then he co-founded Biking in Dallas, has gone through countless Craigslist bike projects (some better than others) and can be found pedaling around town on a Electra Ticino with a camera in tow.
