North Campion Trail Opens After Flooding

A section of North Campion Trail, Irving, Texas.

The recent flooding in city parks along the Elm Fork of the Trinity River is receding, allowing Parks and Recreation staff to open much of North Campion Trail. However, the following sections remain closed:

  • Bird's Fort Park: The main trail is open. However, there is some construction taking place. Visitors should exercise caution in work areas.
  • California Crossing: The parking lot remains closed during construction on the Urban Center Lift Station, which began in 2018.
  • Sam Houston Park: The loop on the trail's north end is closed due to standing water. The main trail through the park is open. 
  • North MacArthur Extension to Coppell: The extension of Campion Trail to Coppell remains closed for construction. Work has been delayed as a result of the flooding.

City staff may close any park or trail without notice to protect the community. Residents are advised to stay clear of closed and barricaded areas in parks.
