City Enhances Local Parks

Filed under: City |

City of Duncanville – Work has begun at Armstrong Park’s Amphitheater for the installation of a new canopy that will enhance the experience for future event-goers and performers. Upon completion, a royal blue canopy will cover the stage and sitting area providing plenty of coverage to accommodate our changing Texas weather. The City’s investment for the project was less $135,000.

Another local park that will soon undergo necessary improvements is Red Bird Park. Located in the northern sector of the city, Red Bird Park is a popular destination for joggers and fitness enthusiasts. Due to its high number of daily visitors, the addition of a restroom is a necessary component to the park: just as is the replacement of the park’s playground after it was vandalized beyond repair this past spring.

Local parks are an integral part of the city’s appearance. It is why the City Council voted to approve the addition of two new litter control employees, whose primary job function is to keep all parks, medians, and right-of-ways clean throughout Duncanville.

“We are already receiving numerous compliments from the public, specifically from Adopt a Park Groups who conduct regular cleanups themselves and have noticed a significant improvement in the cleanliness of our parks,” said Parks and Recreation Director Bart Stevenson.

Duncanville citizens are encouraged to report any trash or debris around public parks by contacting our Parks Superintendent Timothy Hamilton at 972-780-5072.
