The NPNA neighborhood is fortunate to have TWO city parks: Cox Lane Park and Northaven Park – and a hike and bike trail will be opened in the future.
NPNA partners actively with the City of Dallas to ensure parks are well maintained and used only for authorized purposes. These parks are true gems in our neighborhood with Joe’s Creek running through the western boundaries of both parks. NPNA is committed to the long-term preservation and beauty of these parks and the creek for the enjoyment of our neighbors, as well as for events NPNA sponsors throughout the year. If you have any concerns or comments about the parks, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Cox Lane Park
Located north of Royal Lane near Peter Pan Drive, this park sits quietly alongside Joe’s Creek in the most southern part of the NPNA neighborhood. The park includes open green space areas, a playground and a lovely footbridge that spans west across Joe’s Creek into the streets of surrounding homes.
Covering 2+ city blocks, this park is located west of Withers Elementary between Northaven and Alta Vista and continues north along Joe’s Creek to Forest. A large playground is found in the shade of the trees along the creek. Ball fields used for sporting activities (reservation only) and two tennis courts are also located in the park.
Plans are being made for a bike and hike trail to run through Northaven Park on the Oncor power line easement located south of Northaven Road. When complete the trail will run from Central Expressway to Denton Drive and eventually connect to the White Rock Creek Trail on the east and Irving’s Campion Trail on the west. Construction of Phase 2, which includes the segment through Northaven Park, could begin sometime in 2016. Website: northaventrail.org
