Parks and Trails Master Plan
Parks, recreational opportunities, open space, and trails continue to be a key component to the Town of Flower Mound's quality of life for our residents. As the Town continues to develop rural land into commercial and residential tracts, the preservation of parks and open space is vital to the mental and physical health and quality of life of its residents. The primary purpose of the Parks and Trails Plan is to assess the current state of the parks, recreation, trails, and open space system; define needs and deficiencies in the system; and establish goals and priorities for improving the system.
In addition to these primary functions, the plan also identifies changing trends locally, regionally, and nationally; identifies citizens needs and opinions; and recommends changes on various scales – from Town-wide to site-specific, and of various types – from physical, to regulatory, to operational. The plan is intended to guide the staff and elected officials of the Town as they decide how best to meet and prioritize the parks and recreational needs of the Town over the next 10 years.
The Parks and Trails Plan has been updated four times since the original plan in 1989 to reflect the changing needs of Flower Mound residents. The approved Parks and Trails Plan, along with the technical document, is included in the Town's overall Master Plan.
Peters Colony Memorial Park Master Plan
The project consists of the development of a park master plan for the 3.3-acre park located at the corner of Peters Colony and Old Settlers Road, just north of the Churchill Crossing Subdivision and next to the Library. The master plan will address the following elements: site analysis and data collection, topo, tree and boundary survey, opportunities and challenges, public outreach to develop the plans, including preliminary design concept options, a final master plan, and budget estimates. The professional services agreement, with Mesa Design Associates, Inc. was awarded at the May 6, 2019 council meeting. View the approved Master Plan for Peters Colony Memorial Park.
