The Town of Flower Mound Parks and Recreation Department is in the process of developing a Trails and Bikeways Master Plan, which will serve as a roadmap to guide short and long-range priorities for the trails and bikeways network in Flower Mound over the next 10+ years. In developing the plan, resident input was requested to help shape the future of trails and bikeways in the community.
We want to hear your feedback on our draft recommendations for the Trails and Bikeways Master Plan! The master plan will ultimately identify and prioritize enhancements and expansions of the trail and bikeway system within the Town. Town staff and our consultants on this project have been collecting community input throughout 2021 through surveys and in-person and virtual meetings.
On Thursday, Feb. 3, we’ll be presenting the draft recommendations for the master plan, which is reflective of the community input we’ve received so far. Join us for an open house in Council Chambers at Town Hall at 5:30 p.m., during which time we’ll seek residents’ feedback on the recommendations. Feel free to stay for a Parks Board meeting at 6:30 p.m., which will include a presentation to the Board.

Tennis Center Feasibility Study
The Town of Flower Mound Parks and Recreation Department is currently developing a feasibility study for the potential construction and operation of a tennis center in Flower Mound. The study will provide data and information to analyze the market, to determine the size and amenities to be included in the tennis facility, project costs, partnership strategies, funding models, operating budgets, and economic impact for a future tennis center project.
As part of the Tennis Center Feasibility Study, a presentation was given on Jan. 6, 2022 at a Parks Board regular meeting regarding the evaluation of four different park locations as potential locations for a tennis center. If you were unable to attend the Parks Board meeting on Jan. 6, you can watch the presentation here.
At this time, we are seeking feedback on these two viable locations only. The Town is requesting feedback regarding the two concepts until January 30. You can provide comments to the Town by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. If the Town moves forward and the tennis center is approved, there will be opportunities in the future to provide feedback and comments during the design phase of the center. Please keep in mind, these are concept plans meant to highlight the possibilities at each proposed location, and detailed design guidelines, such as fencing, perimeters, lighting, tree placement, etc. will be incorporated during a later phase.
The professional services agreement, with PROS Consulting Inc., was awarded at the May 17, 2021 Town Council meeting. A virtual community meeting was held Aug. 18, 2021 with 172 people signed up.
