About $1.1 million worth of improvements, including two new parking lots and a new trail, are coming to Flag Pole Hill Park.

The city of Dallas began construction Feb. 15 with work scheduled to be finished by November.


The existing parking lot will be removed to create an entry area for the new lots. Crews will also build a nearly 1-mile-long, 6-foot-wide trail that will loop the park.

Changes are also coming to the entrance of the monument.
