North Texas Events & Texas Chili Cook Offs

 

Public Notices:

10/25 As reported on Town of Sunnyvale

Barnes Bridge Park Closed to Public Access.

In partnership with the City of Dallas, Sunnyvale has decided to close the park space located at the end of Barnes Bridge Road. Up until September, Barnes Bridge Park has been maintained and operated by the City of Dallas. Thanks to a partnership between Sunnyvale and the City of Dallas, the Sunnyvale will now be responsible for maintenance and operations of the area.

The first priority is closing the park until such time as the cleanliness and safety of those visiting the area in the future can be ensured. Over the coming months, the park will remain closed while Sunnyvale researches possible uses and future amenities.

Signs indicating the area is closed have been placed along Barnes Bridge Road. If you are in the area and see suspicious activity, please immediately report the information by calling 911. Deputies will be patrolling the area regularly.
