You are cordially invited to provide input on the design of a linear trail on the Playa Drain from Ascarate Park to Riverside High School.
The Playa Drain Trail is a partnership of the Paso del Norte Health Foundation (Health Foundation), City of El Paso and El Paso Water. The Health Foundation is contributing $2 million for the design and construction of the trail from Ascarate Park to Riverside High School. The Health Foundation was established in 1995 to lead, leverage and invest in initiatives, programs and policies that promote health and prevent disease in the Paso del Norte region. The City of El Paso is contributing $300,000 from the Quality of Life Bond for trail amenities like benches and shade structures. The City’s Parks and Recreation Department will maintain the trail once completed. El Paso Water purchased the Playa Drain for storm water management and is allowing for its public use as a trail.
Construction of the trail is expected to begin in late 2017 for completion in 2018.
