(January 20, 2014) Trails End Park was presented with the City of Weslaco's Commercial Beautification Award for efforts in establishing the park's lush Birding Center and enhancing the appeal and appearance of the front entrance to the park. This award is a program of Weslaco Beautiful, a committee of the Weslaco Area Chamber of Commerce and is awarded quarterly to those businesses that develop, foster, and maintain a safe nature-friendly environment for residents
and the surrounding community to enjoy.
Accepting the award for Trails End were surprised park managers Bonnie and Dan Sell. In accepting the award, Bonnie Sell thanked the park residents for their hard work and persevering efforts in developing the front entrance birding center and noted that their effort was fully supported by the park's management. The birding center occupies several thousand square feet of landscaped grounds bordered by a circular walkway and surrounded by bird feeders, trees, and park
benches dedicated to the spouses of park residents who have passed away. A pond with a recirculating
waterfall occupies the center of the sanctuary.
