Editor's Note: This article was originally published Dec. 30, 2020 and updated March 19, 2021 to include the Your Money in Action video above, showing the progress at Bowman Springs Park. 

Construction will begin next week at Bowman Springs Park for a series of improvements, including new sidewalks, a drinking fountain, and lighting and parking lot upgrades.

Because of demolition necessary to begin making these improvements, the public park near Lake Arlington will be closed to vehicle traffic starting Tuesday, Jan. 5, 2021. Boaters are encouraged to use Richard Simpson Park, located at 6300 W. Arkansas Ln., until further notice.

The Arlington City Council approved a $480,000 contract Sept. 29, 2020, with AUI Partners of Fort Worth, for the project, which is expected to be complete by May. Improvements will include construction of a new parking lot entry circle, traffic control speed humps, parking lot islands, concrete sidewalks, new drinking fountain, new irrigation, new subgrade drainage lines, and upgraded LED parking lot fixtures.

Bowman Springs Park, originally referred to as "Feather Beach", is a 14-acre park on the southeastern edge of Lake Arlington. The park, located at 7003 Poly Webb Road, also features a fishing pier, a floating dock, an eight-lane boat ramp.

Arlington voters approved the park improvements, which align with the Arlington City Council priority to Champion Great Neighborhoods, during the 2014 bond election.
