Freese and Nichols developed a master plan and designed Coombs Creek Trail and Stevens Park Golf Course to enhance and promote the continual preservation and revitalization of the historic Oak Cliff neighborhood. Freese and Nichols studied the proposed trail alignment from the Trinity Levee Trail through Stevens Park Golf Course, and split the project into three phases.
Phase I is complete and included more than 1,800 linear feet of trail as well as roadway and storm drain modifications to Kessler Parkway. Phase II will include an additional 5,400 feet of trail. Phase III adds 5,400 feet of trail through the golf course and includes strategies for dealing with erosion control along Coombs Creek, while providing enhancements to the course and the neighborhood. The project facilitates safe pedestrian and bicycle traffic and exercise use in the older residential area and park.
