The first major plantings of crape myrtles were made in September 2000 and April 2001 along Eldorado Parkway from Highway 5 (McDonald Street) west to Hardin Boulevard, also along U.S. 380 just west of U.S. 75.

Subsequent plantings were made from Hardin Road to Stonebridge Drive, also along Virginia Parkway.
