Spring Valley Terms at Spring Valley DART Station

Outdoor Sculpture

 100 W. Spring Valley Road, Richardson, TX

Spring Valley Road, now a heavily traveled thoroughfare surrounded by employment centers and a residential area, was once the site of a natural spring that Native Americans and area farmers used.

The aerial station’s art and design hearken back to the area’s historic roots and early settlement. At the station’s ground-level entrance, sculptor Michael Morgan’s red brick columns, titled Spring Valley Terms, appear to grow organically out of the ground just as the spring and creek that once flowed near the station.

Several design elements incorporate a trellis or arbor theme with flowing floral designs. On the upper level, the railing treatments designed by artists Chong Keun Chu and Hyun Ju Chung represent water flowing organically from a natural spring.
