The City of Richardson currently boasts more than forty miles of trails that run throughout the city. In 2010, the City of Richardson developed a Trailway Master Plan with the goal of creating a city-wide trail system that connects with trails in adjacent cities. By coordinating the trail system with on-street bicycle lanes, the city plans to connect parks, recreation centers and other areas of interest throughout the city. Enhancements to the trail systems will help make the trails a more useful and appealing avenue for transportation and exercise alike. Please consider assisting the City of Richardson through donations and sponsorships in the following areas:
Drinking fountains $5,000 - $6,000
Fountains will provide water for both residents and their pets, and will provide convenient spots for rest and refreshment. The Parks Department will work with the donor to select a suitable location for new fountains.
The addition of trailside benches helps create areas for rest or contemplation within the trail system. The Parks Department will work with the donor to select a suitable location.
Wayfinding signage at primary trail crossings will visually depict trail connections, making it easier for travelers to navigate and explore.
Landscaping starting at $500
Special landscaping can be designed into nodes at trail crossings or at other key points along the trail. Landscaping may be developed in conjunction with fountains, benches, and/or signage to create small public areas that enhance the overall appeal of the trail. The Parks Department will work with the donor to select a suitable location.
There are opportunities for these donations to be acknowledged by plaque or related signage.
