A new trail segment is coming to the Park! And it may be installed by the time you receive this Timbergram.
Thanks to donations from the Timbergrove Manor Neighborhood Association (TMNA) and the Timbergrove Manor Civic Club (TMCC), Houston Parks Board has confirmed a new trail segment will be constructed in the park. Pending weather and any unforeseen circumstances, construction should only take a day or two to complete and is expected to take place in October.
The trail segment will extend from the kiosk on the east side of the park to the main trails inside the park. It will replace a narrow path that is overgrown with roots. The new trail segment will be as wide as the internal trails, will be made of decomposed granite over a geo-textile base with culverts to mitigate flooding.
The TMNA’s donation was part of the proceeds from the 2017 Run the Grove 5K race which was held this past spring. The TMCC’s donation was largely from designated donations from residents made to the TMCC for the Park. Thank you!
