Many months after the grand Tarrant Regional Water District signs went up along the Trinity Trails, the rusted-out, non-functioning hulk of a water fountain at the Southwest Boulevard trailhead was finally replaced with a shiny new one.

Curiously, a gravestone-type hunk of rock, engraved with verses from the Bible, was installed beside it. I’d love to know if this is the work of the TRWD and, if so, why is it appropriate to promote a specific religion on a public trail.
