Help us Connect the Trinity Trail!

Posted by admin on September 27th, 2011 at 9:23 am

North and South Dallas will be united on October 23rd with the community built Trinity Trail project that began this summer. The City of Dallas, the Trinity Trust, DORBA, Groundwork Dallas, the Trinity Strand and Team Better Block are asking for you to join our effort. With over nine miles of off-road trail already completed it is time to connect the Trinity with the Katy Trail and Bishop Arts District. The on-street bicycle facilities are set to be the first of our modern bicycle system plan. We have found the most expedited and efficient way for this connection to be made is with community funding. The Dallas Parks Foundation Fund under the Dallas Foundation has agreed to collect the funds for the project and the City of Dallas will direct efforts on the ground with construction crews to begin striping the streets within weeks. Our goal is to raise $75K in 20 days! Help us as we connect the North and South with trails, bridges, parks and people. The names of all donors will be added to a plaque that will be installed at one of the trail heads.

We’re accepting donations of any amount online here. Please note “Trinity Trail Project” within the comments section.

Checks should be made payable to Dallas Parks Foundation and mailed to the following address: 381 Casa Linda Plaza, LB117, Dallas, Texas 75218 – Memo line: Trinity Trail Project (TTP).

Everyone who gives will receive a letter from The Dallas Foundation. This letter is your receipt and should be retained for tax records. 100% of your contribution is tax deductible.

The Trinity Trail is ahead of its time and your contribution will help us complete this historic link.  Please donate today.

  2. I’ve been looking forward to connecting off road bike/pedestrian traffic to both sides of the Trinity for decades. Glad to see we’re almost there.

  3. Someone (whom I’m sure wants this to succeed) asked a pertinent question at Unfair Park: What happens to my donation if the $75,000 isn’t raised? Will it be applied to another project, refunded, or what?

    • Any funds raised will go toward the buildout. If we don’t reach our goal, we’ll build as much as we can and work with the city to extend our deadline if need be.
