GET A BUFFALO BURGER, HELP WITH PARK IMPROVEMENTS

The old tradition of buffalo burgers in the park returns next weekend.

Members of the Shanley Park Association will be serving buffalo burgers from noon to 5 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 27. The park, located behind City Hall, is managed by the association.

The burgers will be offered with a drink and chips for $10. Comanche Peak stagecoach photos will be available for $5.

The park board hopes to continue with improvements including a covered pavilion, more walkways and benches.

As efforts continue to beautify the park, more people are taking advantage of the location. Many weddings take place in the park, especially near the newest water feature, the Jewel Ball Fountain.

For more information, contact Courtney Blackman, association president, at 817-578-9621.
