The City of Round Rock will host an open house to gather feedback from the public regarding a proposed new park in Downtown Round Rock from 6-8 p.m. on April 18 at the Baca Center Dining Room, located at 301 W. Bagdad Ave., Bldg 2.
Round Rock City Council unanimously approved the design of a master plan for more park land and trail connectivity in Downtown Round Rock at the March 9 Council meeting. The $277,834 contract with design firm Design Workshop will include design of a proposed project situated along Brushy Creek on the north side of Downtown Round Rock. Round Rock officials have acquired several pieces of land is expected to allow the City to build the proposed park and tie the future Heritage Trail to Sheppard Street/Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Way to bring pedestrians and cyclists into Downtown. The proposed project is expected to also give officials the opportunity to address stormwater issues in the area.
The open house is an opportunity for Round Rock residents to share their thoughts and ideas about the new park with the design team and City officials.
Funding for the design of the master plan will come from the City’s general self-financed construction fund. The construction of the Lawn at Brushy Creek is one of the proposed projects outlined in the Parks, Recreation and Sports proposition in the City’s upcoming May 6 bond election.
