2018 Bond - Parks Projects

The City issued $4.29 million for several different projects, which are currently underway. Here is an update, as of October 2020, on those projects. 

Highland Village Road Sidewalk - Staff has approved the alignment of the new sidewalk which will connect to the existing sidewalk at the Municipal Complex and head east along the south side of Highland Village Road to The Robert & Lee DuVall Center, then connects on the north side of Highland Village Road to Lakeside Park then is on the south side to connect to the Copperas Trail adjacent to Wichita Forest Park. We are combining this project with the Victoria Park walking path improvement project and the trail extension from Chapel Hill to the FM 2499 tunnel on the west side of FM 2499 for a cost savings. The project will likely go out for bid early 2021.

Brazos Park Parking Lot - The Brazos Park parking lot expansion is complete nearly doubling its parking capacity from 54 spaces to 106.

Victoria Park Walking Path - This project will go out for bid early 2021.  

Sunset Point Park - Renovations to this park are complete. The project included adding a turnaround for first responders, parking spaces including on ADA space, lighting, and a perimeter barrier to keep vehicles off the landscape. 

Unity Park  - Kids Kastle, Pond Improvements, and Softball Field Expansion
Kids Kastle - Highland Village staff, Play by Design, LLC and small community groups completed the build of Kids Kastle. The playground opened on December 19. Personalized pickets are still available for purchase, just complete the form to have your family included in this special section of the playground. More information on Kids Kastle can be found here.

Pond Improvements - The dredging of both ponds is complete. This process increased the depth of the ponds on average of 2.5 feet, which will improve the overall health of the aquatic life and also provide more water holding capacity during periods of heavy rain.

Softball Field Expansion - The softball field has been added to Unity Park and is ready for use. Added amenities include USB charging ports, ADA accessible picnic tables, two warm-up stations, two batting cages, LED maintenance lights.
