Greetings Supporters of Exall Park,

Before this year gets off to a faster start than last year finished, I just wanted to drop a note to so many of you that have supported Exall Park through the years with your volunteer hours, your financial support, and
your many wonderful words of encouragement.

With your support we had another successful Dallas Symphony Orchestra concert in Exall Park last year. It has grown through the years to become one of the City’s largest performances held in one of our city
parks. The Friends of Exall Park Board and the Dallas Parks Board receive so many positive comments from the community and citizens of East Dallas about how much they enjoy the festivities and concert at Exall.

With the help of all our volunteers we were able to plant 11 more new trees in Exall Park this year. Over the last three years we have added 17 new trees to replace the old and dying trees that had to be removed. Earlier in the spring of last year we were able to get our new entry beds into the park from McCoy Street & Villars Street.

You may have noticed the reconstruction work on the sidewalks near the rock garden and Whimsy.  An attempt is being made to raise the sidewalks in that area to keep water and mud from pooling on the sidewalk in that area. We hope that the solution works.

None of these projects would have been possible without your dedicated support. On behalf of the Friends of Exall Park Board I want to send out a huge thank you. Your support is greatly appreciated and together we will strive to continue to maintain our wonderful park and to add other enhancements to make our park even better.

Lastly, I want to let everyone know we are going to have another “Clean Up Day” in the park on March 2nd. Also, I am happy to announce the Dallas Symphony Orchestra will be performing once again this year at Exall on Tuesday evening, June 4th. Please mark your calendars.

Thank you all so much,

Wayne Smith
