A new sculpture is coming to the corner of White Rock Trail and Church Road.

Richardson ISD trustees voted at their most recent work session to approve an agreement between the district and the Lake Highlands Public Improvement District. The improvement district will place a pegasus sculpture and some accompanying landscaping on the northwest corner of the intersection, as well as maintain the site.

The statue is part of the LHPID’s on-going work to improve White Rock Trail’s walking trails in conjunction with the city of Dallas, the district shared in a presentation.

The pegasus was donated by Lake Highlands High School graduate and artist Daniel Scoggins to the improvement district late last year. Initial talks placed the statue at Watercrest Park, just south of the now-planned installation at White Rock Trail and Church Road.

The school district owns the land and has no current plans for use of it, staff shared. The agreement will last for 10 years with the option to renew down the line.
