Lower Denton Creek extends from the dam at Grapevine Lake to its confluence with the Elm Fork of the Trinity River. The riparian corridor along the creek has been heavily encroached upon by residential, commercial, and industrial developments and consequently is subject to frequent flooding events. Damaging floods and associated erosion within the watershed are exacerbated when larger flows are released from the Grapevine Lake during times of non-drought conditions. 

VERDUNITY is collaborating with TBG Partners and Biohabitats to develop a master plan for a new linear park for the City of Grapevine. The park will feature restoration of riparian corridor systems, trails, and environmental education areas that seamlessly integrate and connect with adjacent residential, commercial, and corporate development.
