North Texas Giving Day

North Texas Giving Day, our biggest fundraising day of the year, is next Thursday, September 20. Please save the date and plan to donate in support of your trail. All funds go directly to trail enhancements, amenities, and events. 

Even better, you don’t have to wait until the 20th to donate. You can do a planned gift now!

Our goal is to raise $10,000.00. Please help us get there. All donations or $25 or more will be amplified by bonus funds! 

Movie Night

We look forward to seeing everyone tonight for Movie Night on the Trail! We’re showing Paddington 2. Bring a blanket, picnic for dinner, and enjoy desserts donated by our sponsors Corner Bakery Preston/Forest and Shake Shack Preston/Royal. The movie will start around dusk (7:40 PM). If anything changes due to inclement weather we will post updates on our Facebook page and on Twitter @NorthavenTrail. 



Phase 2 Construction Status

Construction of Phase 2 of the trail has started! The construction is divided into two parts: Phase 2A (Preston Road to Cinderella Drive; near Midway) and Phases 2B-C (Cinderella Drive to Denton Drive). 

Phases 2B and C are Dallas County led and are currently under construction.  Dallas County estimates completion by late 2018 or early 2019. You may have seen some of the construction underway, or pavement where the trail is located. The trail is not being built in linear fashion and instead the contractor is moving up and down the easement in order to complete the project as efficiently as possible while at the same time being sensitive to Oncor requirements and related City of Dallas repairs. If the construction appears to have stopped anywhere in this phase please be assured that it has not been abandoned. 

Phase 2A is City of Dallas led and construction of this phase has not started. The project bid is in the process of being finalized and the City anticipates construction will begin late summer/early fall, and should be compete by late summer/early fall 2019.

Additionally, please be aware that, even though the pavement is complete in some places, the trail is not yet open west of Preston. 

Movie Night on May 12!

Join us on Saturday, May 12 at dusk for Movie Night on the trail! The movie will be shown near the Edgemere intersection (on the other side from Dealey Elementary) and will begin around dusk.
