Hunterwood Park Closing for Construction

Beginning at the end of November 2018, Hunterwood Park and Playground will be closed as a part of a creek stabilization project at the park. It is anticipated that the project will be completed by late Spring 2019. To find other great parks and playgrounds you can visit during that time, visit: http://www.coppelltx.gov/parks/parks-trails.

About the project:

Over the years, Grapevine Creek has continued to experience channel incising and bank/slope failures. 

In 2011, the Coppell Parks and Recreation Department completed Phase 1 of the Hunterwood Park erosion control project, which consisted of a gabion retaining wall structure around the playground area. ​

The scope of Phase 2 of this project will provide drop structures in several locations which are used to control the grade along the creek by controlling the energy and velocities of the stream to reduce/eliminate future erosion and undercutting of the banks. Retaining walls utilizing natural erosion control materials will be built in the areas where the slope is failing. The City will also add an additional trail to tie into the existing trails that meander throughout the park.
