2019 Bond in Motion as Light Poles Pulled at Winters Park

Winters Poles 360x250

The $3.2 million project will provide modern lighting to fields used by the City's largest youth sports league, the Garland Soccer Association.

As soon as the Garland Soccer Association passed out trophies and put the wraps on its season, crews arrived at Winters Park this week to embark on a $3.2 million update of the soccer field lights. The fall soccer season ended Sunday, Nov. 17, at Winters; the first light poles came down Nov. 18.

By the time the soccer players return in February, the familiar yellow glow along Garland Avenue will be replaced by LED lighting. Working on short order between seasons, the City will be able to eliminate dark spots on the fields themselves while also keeping the illumination within Winters Park. It'll also be a big difference from the perspectives at neighboring residential, retail and Garland Independent School District properties.

Parks and quality of life were major focal points of the May 2019 bond election, in which eight items were all passed by the voters. The Winters lighting project is first of $117.75 million in resident-approved parks projects that will be completed.
