LTNA GARDEN SOCIAL AND PLANT SWAP
On a beautiful Saturday in May, over 50 Lakewood Trails neighbors gathered in the lovely backyard of Kay Nettles on Sperry to share plants and seeds and to chat about all things “green” in our neighborhood. The Annual Lakewood Trails Garden Social and Plant Swap on May 14th was a big success with adults and kids alike. PHOTOS

PARTIAL CLOSURE OF SOPAC TRAIL FOR IMPROVEMENTS
Posted on Aug 4th, 2022
On Monday, August 8, 2022, there will be partial closures of the SoPac Trail from Tokalon Dr. to Northwest Highway.
Arbor Masters will be raising trees lines over sidewalks, paved trails, and adjacent mowed turf areas along the trail. There will also be a 3-foot cutback from guard rails along the trail.
Localized sections of the trail will be closed while work is occurring during the morning and afternoon but will reopen when work is done each day. Dallas Parks & Recreation anticipates this work will take approximately 3 - 6 days.

SOPAC TRAIL UPDATE
Posted on May 23rd, 2022
LTNA continues to be a strong supporter as well as a founding entity of the Friends of the SoPac Trail. Here is an update from the group:
The Friends of the SoPac Trail are excited to introduce the launching of their website: www.friendsofthesopactrail.org. The website will serve to publicize all the work that The Friends are doing in support of the trail as well as providing a vehicle to communicate with all the Friend’s membership. As we strive to be a citizen group in service to the residents of our adjacent neighborhoods and support to our Dallas Park and Recreation Department, we are hopeful that our new website will facilitate this core mission. Please feel free to visit the website, to subscribe to receive future updates, and soon you will be able to donate to the cause from that site.
The “Friends” as an organization is joining the Dallas Trails Coalition which is supporting hike and bike paths around the city. This group is supported by the Circuit Trail Conservancy, informally known as The Loop. Information on the Conservancy can be found at The Loop. LTNA SoPac Trail Photos

SoPac Trail Cleanup
Saturday, August 13, 2022, 8:30am 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.
