National Dessert Day is today? Umm yes please! Just so happens we have 3 tasty dessert vendors out at our Bloomin' Bluegrass Festival tonight and Saturday. Who needs a maple bacon donut from Donut Snob? You do, that's who. How about a good old-fashioned Root Beer float from Thomsen's Root Beer? Or if you don't want that ice cream to float, pick one of the delectable flavors from Serendipity - Ice Cream Bus.

The Barney Wood Bark Park will be closed from October 10 - 24. Please see the post below for details! 👇

🚨 The Barney Wood Bark Park will be closed from October 10 - 24. 🚨

To keep the Barney Wood Bark Park's beautiful, lush, green lawn, the park closure will need to be extended to two weeks.

The closure allows the parks team to overseed the park grounds with grass seeds as part of the winterization of the Bark Park. 🐶

🐾 The closure allows the grass seeds to grow and establish roots. 🐾

We look forward to seeing our furriends on Tuesday, October 25.

For National Park and Recreation Month, I’d like to highlight one special employee, Jessica Alvarado, who recently received a well-deserved promotion to Manager of the Farmers Branch Community Recreation Center. Her dedication to delivering excellent service to our residents and superb work ethic has not gone unnoticed, and has led to her numerous promotions over several years.

This past Tuesday, she stepped up to ensure the campers did not miss their field trip when their bus driver suddenly called in sick. Many do not know that Jessica’s career started as a bus driver and she still maintains her licensing… well, she rolled up her sleeves, got behind the wheel, and personally made sure the campers got to their field trip safely. When I asked “how do you drive a vehicle this big?” she demonstrated… sound effects courtesy of her, too.

Please help me in celebrating yet another fantastic Farmers Branch employee, Jessica Alvarado.

LOVE, love, love seeing this!

We just finished installing the soccer goals and nets and these are some of the first residents I have seen using our new public city soccer fields along Amber Lane behind Dave Blair intermidiate school! They are both CFBISD students; a and a living nearby.

Our Farmers Branch Parks and Recreation staff did a great job building these new goals.

So excited to see more residents using these new fields and soon our new volleyball courts as well.

Last night, we celebrated our dear friend Judy Byrd as she was awarded the 2022 Witness to History Award!

Applicants for the award must meet the following qualifications to be considered:
-documented outstanding service/contribution to the Farmers Branch
- 50 years as a resident of Farmers Branch for citizen, business, or organization

Judy has lived in Farmers Branch for 61 years and been involved with our Farmers Branch Police Department COP, Farmers Branch Historical Park, Farmers Branch Parks and Recreation and more.

Congratulations Judy! ❤️🎉💪🏼💁🏻‍♀️
Very much looking forward to our new recreational sand volleyball courts and soccer fields coming to our neighborhood where Montgomery Elementary once stood.
