The City Council heard updates on the construction of Durham Park and a pedestrian bridge in Breckinridge Park at its work session Monday. Both projects are funded through the 2010 Bond Program.
Construction of Durham Park is on schedule, with completion expected at the end of May. The City expects to hold a dedication ceremony for the $1.5 million park in early June. The City bought and demolished homes on four contiguous lots from 400 to 406 S. Weatherred Dr. to make room for the park, which will include a playground, plaza, open play lawn and butterfly garden. A pavilion will include bricks from the houses that were torn down to make room for the park and an interpretive sign that will explain the history of the site.
Construction of a fabricated timber truss pedestrian bridge over the Beck Branch of Rowlett Creek in Breckinridge Park was completed at the end of March. The $264,000 bridge replaces a historical bridge that was damaged in a storm and removed in 2006.
