SoPac Trail Clean Up Team
Saturday, March 13, 2021, 8:30 AM at SoPac Trail
In January 2020, our clean up team began picking up litter on the SoPac Trail adjacent to our neighborhood. The previous seven years our clean up team maintained an area near the spillway and Winsted Road at White Rock Lake. Our new clean up site begins under the Mockingbird Bridge continuing to the Trestle Bridge near White Rock Park. The clean up takes about an hour. We meet the 2nd Saturday of every month at 8:30am.
Singles, couples and families are welcome. Kids love using the grabbers and take pride in picking up litter. Teens may earn community service hours and may flex their hours. If you are interested in joining our team or need more information please email Chairperson Pat Watson, Neighbors@LakewoodTrails.net or call her at
214 531 1299.
LTNA Garden Social & Plant Swap

Although we were not able to hold our annual LTNA Garden Social and Plant Swap last year due to Covid restrictions, we will have a modified version this year on Saturday, May 8, from 11-1. Please save the date and stay tuned for more details.
We will observe current COVID protocols to make sure the event is safe and stress-free. There will be plants and other garden items available to attendees, some great door prizes, and individually wrapped refreshments. Neighbors can come and browse the tables, and welcome to bring plants to share or trade. Everyone can appreciate being outside, enjoying the spring weather and seeing neighbors.

NE Division Fallen Officer Fund
Posted on Feb 22nd, 2021
Fellow Neighbors, we have been asked if there is anything the neighborhood is going to do for the family of the fallen police officer from The Northeast Division who was recently killed in the line of duty. We reached out to command staff at the division and they suggested taking up a collection to help the surviving family. So we are collecting donations to support his expectant surviving wife and stepson. If you are interested in contributing, please go to the following link Officer Mitchell Penton. Or you can write a check made out to Lakewood Trails Neighborhood Association and deliver it to 6729 Santa Maria Ln. We will deliver one check to the Officer Penton’s family per instructions forthcoming from D.P.D. Northeast.
We would also like to inform everyone that the association will match each donation made by Lakewood Trails residents dollar for dollar up to $1000.
2021 BRUSH AND BULK COLLECTION
Posted on Jan 1st, 2021
Lakewood Trails brush and bulk trash collection is the third week of the Month. For 2021, the weeks are: Jan 18, Feb 15, Mar 14, Apr 18, May 16, Jun 20, Jul 18, Aug 15, Sept 19, Oct 17, Nov 14, and Dec 19. Items must be set out by 7am on the Monday of collection week, but not earlier than the Thursday before our collection week.
More information and answers to FAQs: DallasBrushandBulk.com
On June 19, 2019 the Dallas City Council adopted an ordinance amending regulations related to brush and bulky trash. Monthly brush and bulky trash collection will be limited to 10 cubic yards. (10 cubic yards = approximately 10 stoves). One month per calendar year, residents may set out up to 20 cubic yards, provided it is requested by calling 3-1-1 in advance. Enforcement of these new limits begins on July 1, 2020.
Where the quantity of brush and bulky trash set out for collection exceeds 10 cubic yards and a request for an oversized brush and bulky trash collection was not submitted, the set out may be collected and a fee will be assessed on the dwelling unit's water bill. The fee will be assessed at a rate of $60 per five cubic yards, billed in five cubic yard increments. A citation may be issued in addition to the collection fee.
