Star Park Las Colinas Teams with KIB for Beautification Project
Group Paints at Fritz Park Petting Farm
(IRVING, TEXAS)— Star Park Las Colinas, a new Lincoln Property Company apartment community, recently partnered with Keep Irving Beautiful (KIB) for a beautification project. On May 6, four employees met KIB staff at Fritz Park in Irving to paint at the Petting Farm. The enthusiastic group added a fresh coat of bright red paint and white trim to the entrance façade, which is designed to look like a barn. The volunteers combined efforts resulted in 14 hours of volunteer service, and an entrance that now shines.
Star Park Las Colinas employees also participated in the virtual ‘Don’t Mess with Texas Trash-Off’ on April 6. The management team posted pictures and videos from their day at T.W. Richardson Grove Park. During the event, the volunteers collected 10 bags of litter from the tree line areas along the Elm Fork of the Trinity River. The volunteers donated seven hours of service.
“KIB is excited to welcome Star Park Las Colinas to Irving,” said KIB board member Kelly Horn. “The petting farm has been such a popular attraction for Irving children for many years, and the efforts of the Star Park Las Colinas volunteers have made the entrance more inviting.”
