Photos from the Cottonwood Creek Trail Esplandade Dedication
Hubbard and I were a few of the cyclists who rode to the Cottonwood Creek Trail Esplanade dedication ceremony last week. It was held at 10am on a work day, so it was not the best time for the people who will be riding on it. This was more of a well earned celebration for the folks who helped plan, build and fund it.
City Council Members Linda Koop, Ron Natinsky, Jerry Allen were on-hand, as was County Commissioner Maurine Dickey and former Council Member and Mayor Pro Tem Mary Poss. Leadership from the City of Richardson was also present.
The Esplanade, Plaza, whatever you want to call it is simply gorgeous and I was delighted that much of it is under the canopy of trees, so there is some shade to be had. I heard some picnic tables will be going in soon, where all the shade is, so this would be a perfect place to stop and smell the roses when you’re cycling the Cottonwood Creek Trail.
The most southern “G” section of the trail is still unfinished, it’s under constructions but they’re chipping away at it. I didn’t realize they are planning to join the Cottonwood Creek Trail to the Northaven Trail via an appendage that will run under Central Expressway. I don’t have the details on it yet but we’ll post them here when we learn more. Until then enjoy some of what we saw:
