The Rotary Club of Coppell and the Coppell Lion's Club joined forces for the improvement of Heritage Park in Coppell.
"The flower beds haven't been touched in many years", said Chris Long, President of Coppell Historical Association, "they were overgrown and out of control." The Coppell Rotary Club and Lions Club worked together, along with scout troops, Lions Club Leos and Rotary Interact Club members to clean, weed, plant Hollyhock seeds and mulch all the flower beds in the park. It was day of collaborative fun and work, with a beautiful result. Says Chris Long, "I'm overwhelmed and without words, the flowerbeds have never looked so good. In 2 years we will have Hollyhocks, a native flower of that time, growing around all our 1920's homes.
Heritage Park of Coppell is open for tours of old Coppell homes and shop in the vintage Minyards Grocery Store at 700 S Coppell Road,
