From the City of Tyler:
TYLER (KYTX) - Bergfeld Park was named a Lone Star Legacy Park for its special prominence in the local community and the state of Texas.
These parks have endured the test of time and have become iconic to those who have visited, played and rested on their grounds. A designation as a Lone Star Legacy is one of the highest honors that can be bestowed on a park by the Texas Recreation and Parks Society (TRAPS).
Bergfeld Park received this designation at the Texas Recreation and Parks Society (TRAPS) Institute and EXPO in Corpus Christ, Texas, on February 18, 2014 and was accepted by the Tyler City Council during today's regularly scheduled meeting.
Eight Texas Parks were honored with this designation. The purpose of the designation is to recognize what a park means to a particular community.
Bergfeld Park currently has both Local and National Historic Landmark designation symbolizing its rich history in our community.
