Eastus Cup 2018 Winner
The Eastus Cup is a neighborhood tradition since the 1950’s, awarded annually by the East Kessler Beautification Committee to those who have shown exemplary care and design in the landscape of their home. This wonderful honor is commemorated by a trophy cup mounted on a wooden base engraved with each year’s recipient along with the Eastus Cup yard sign that adorns the recipient yard until the next year’s winner is announced at the annual spring picnic. The 2018 Eastus Cup winner is Kay A. King located at 1600 Oak Knoll. The community would like to thank Kay for the care and loving attention she gives her yard and the beauty it brings to us all.
Methodist Hospital and Traffic Island Improvement
We as a community would like to thank Methodist Hospital for their generous contribution to improve the traffic island at Greenbrier and Stemmons. The design includes repurposing the existing flagstone path into a curved wall feature with a bench and butterfly garden. The installation is expected to be completed soon.

Rene Gracia and his firm, RGD+B, is pleased to have two homes on the 2018 AIA Dallas Tour of Homes. To kick off the weekend's activities, their award-winning project on Bent Tree Golf Course will serve as the location for the tour’s Premier Party. The other home is located right here in in East Kessler Park at 937 Kessler Pkwy. The project was a complete transformation of a dilapidated 1950s split-level home, echoing its mid-century roots with low, sweeping proportions and open expanses that allow the natural spaces to define the architecture. Come explore and check out the other amazing projects on this year's tour. Tickets are available at 2018 AIA Dallas Tour of Homes.
