Over 600 Trees Lost!
On Sunday, June 9, 2019, Dallas parks lost an estimated 600 trees as a result of a powerful storm that passed through. The high winds and heavy rainfall hit the White Rock Lake area the hardest, officials said. About a third of the trees lost were around White Rock Lake. Read more about the devastation:
The Dallas Parks Foundation is asking for donations to the Dallas Parks Reforestation Fund to help repopulate our parks with life giving trees. You can donate here: Be sure to designate your gift to Dallas Parks Reforestation Fund. Or you can also donate directly to White Rock Lake:
Mandatory Watering Guidelines
Just a reminder that irrigation of landscaped areas with hose-end sprinklers or automatic irrigation systems is limited to no more than twice per week according to the MANDATORY schedule by the City of Dallas. No watering is allowed on Mondays, Tuesdays or Fridays and from April 1-October 31, watering is prohibited between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. on the allowed watering days. 
Residents with street addresses ending in an even number (0, 2, 4, 6 or 8) can water on Sundays and Thursdays. Residents with addresses ending in an odd number (1, 3, 5, 7 or 9) can water on Saturdays and Wednesdays. These restrictions apply to automatic or in-ground irrigation systems and hose-end sprinklers only. Watering by hand, drip irrigation or the use of soaker hoses will be permitted at any time.
