Linda Spurlock Renovation Project to Begin on July 20, 2020

We are excited that the renovation project at Linda Spurlock Park will begin on July 20, 2020 and is expected to be complete by March 2021.

The park, located at 6400 Glenview Drive, opened in 1995 and is named after previous City Councilwoman Linda Spurlock. Mrs. Spurlock was the first female to serve on the North Richland Hills City Council, serving from 1987-1997. She passed away in January 1998.

The 14.5 acre park will receive almost $900,000 in improvements and is funded by the ½ cent sales tax for park development and park land dedication fees. Improvements include a new robust interactive playground with separate elements for ages 2-5 and ages 6-12. Additionally, a new picnic pavilion, for birthday parties, family reunions and other events, will be constructed.

Improvements will also include additional adjacent shaded picnic tables and a new restroom facility, each of which will conveniently be located near the playground. Most of the active elements will be located in the southwest area of the park with beautiful views of the fountain and pond. The project will also include an expansion of the .6 mile loop trail, with an additional section linking the west side of the park to the east side providing an optional shorter walking route.

The majority of the park is closed to the public beginning July 20, 2020 during construction. There will be limited public access, with no park amenities available. Park users are encouraged to explore other parks in the city while the park is under construction.

While Linda Spurlock Park is under construction there will be:

  • No Public Restrooms
  • No Drinking Fountains
  • No Access to Playground
  • No Access to Pavilion
  • No Access to South end of the Walking Trail

The Public may still access the north end of the walking trail, but full loop access will not be available.

Construction is expected to be complete in March 2021.  Linda Spurlock Schematic.
