Residents urged to use caution at Rose Rudman and Faulkner Park trails
The heavy rainfall we experienced last week caused erosion in some parts of the City’s walking and biking trails. Two specific trails were affected: the Rose Rudman Trail and the Faulkner Park Trails. 

A temporary reflective barrier has been placed at Rose Rudman where the ground around the West Mud Creek collapsed, south of Southside Park. Similarly, the bridge that crosses West Mud Creek at Faulkner Park has been closed with a barricade. The City of Tyler’s Parks and Recreation department advices trail users to use caution and to avoid crossing all bridges at the Faulkner Park trails. We ask trail users to not ignore or cross the barriers and barricades.
To report downed limbs and other storm damage or for more information, please contact the Parks and Recreation department at (903) 531-1370 or (903) 531-1371.
