Lee Park Project Gets Underway

Construction of Snyder’s Union -- a $1.5 million plaza on the Katy Trail overlooking Lee Park and its beautiful fountain -- began early this week. As you move through this section of Katy Trail between Lemmon and Hall over the next five months, you will notice several changes:
  1. The main trail will be removed and a temporary trail will be built to move you around the construction zone
  2. Fences will be installed to keep you from running, biking or skating into the construction zone
  3. Scrub brush will be removed from the hillside between the Turtle Creek pond in Lee Park and the Katy Trail
  4. Construction crews will establish a staging area at the bottom of the hill between the pond and the Trail
  5. Signs will be posted with a rendering of the finished product as well as donors who helped make it possible

Thanks to Bobbi & Dick Snyder, who donated more than $1 million for this project, and all the many supporters who stepped up to help meet their challenge grant.

If you have questions about the construction project, please call the Friends of the Katy Trail at 214-303-1180 or visit our Construction Updates page.
