Crews have just started pouring concrete for the Katy Trail’s new Snyder’s Union plaza, which will overlook Lee Park. That new plaza should be complete by Thanksgiving.

Back in June, the city approved up to $200,000 in 2006 bond money for this project.  The rest of the money for that $1.5 million project came from private money — mostly from neighbors Bobbi and Dick Snyder, who gave more than $1 million, and for whom the plaza is named in honor of.

Snyder’s Union will feature five large granite benches, a trellis for shade, a tiered drinking fountain, new landscaping, and a birds-eye view of Lee Park.

A temporary asphalt trail has been built for everyone to use during construction. It begins at Lemmon Avenue and continues to Hall Street.
