Of the new trail projects mentioned in March’s cover story, this one will be the first to be completed— the project manager says likely sometime this month. It’s not a major trail — just an 8-foot wide trail designed for Kessler Park and Stevens Park neighbors to use. And the almost-finished pathway is only phase one. (Look at this map to see the entire proposed project.)

But Coombs Creek is an important trail in Oak Cliff because it could eventually connect with the Trinity River levee trails and the Chalk Hill Trail (more to come on those trails this week on Back Talk.)
