Due to the delicate nature of The Stepping Stone: Texas Native Restoration Area, the City of Elgin Parks & Recreation asks that patrons follow these rules and guidelines. These guidelines are in place to both protect our patrons from potentially harmful plants such as those with thorns, as well as protect new seedlings and wildlife from being damaged.
The term "stepping stone" refers to it's ecological standing, however there are physical stepping stones participants can walk on. Use these stepping stones at your own risk. These are natural tree stumps laid on the dirt meaning they are decomposing and providing necessary nutrients to the ground. Stepping stones are uneven, wobbly, soft and slippery. Use caution if you choose to walk on the stepping stones.
If you sit on the bench, please stay within the mulched area to avoid disturbing the local flora and fauna.
