Project Description: This project was one of three projects developed in the downtown area to enhance recreational opportunities while reintroducing the public to different aspects of Belton’s history. The other projects were the Harris Community Center and Harris Park which we provided site plans, sidewalk, and parking lot design.
The Hike & Bike Trail project consisted of 7,500’ of a 10’ concrete hike and bike trail, 7 pocket parks, 500’ of retaining wall lined with limestone rock. The project also included one low water crossing of Nolan Creek, one pedestrian bridge, 7 waterway crossings and approximately 1,500’ of the decorative handrail, and two parking lots.
This project received the 2006 Texas Municipal League Municipal Excellence Award which was submitted by the City of Belton.

This project was partially funded through a federal grant administered by TxDOT.
