City Adopts Master Plan For One of Newest Parks
Tyler City Council unanimously adopted a master plan for Gladys and T.B. Stewart Park, including approximately 2,600 linear feet of concrete trails, 900 linear feet of decomposed granite trails, icons describing the history of the St. Louis Community, a community garden with a barn/garden shelter, a small pond, picnic pavilion with nearby playground, heirloom garden, and a pavilion/stage for outdoor events that opens onto a lawn area. The plan also includes restrooms, a 19 car parking lot and a windmill.
The park is a nine-acre parcel comprised of open meadows, mature hardwoods, a stand of pines, and a drainage swale. The site also contains a rock house with a garage. A site plan was prepared for the house that provides a meeting space to accommodate small groups.
