City Parks Master Plan

Master Parks Plan

In May, 2005, the City Council adopted the Master Parks Plan.  The city and county hired Hall-Bargainer, Inc., to develop site plans for Eastern Williamson County Park, Murphy Park and Robinson Park. They have also developed a plan to improve the hike and bike trail that traverses the city. The Parks, Recreation and Open Space Master Plan identified high, moderate and low priority items the community would like to see our parks. Hall-Bargainer, Inc., in partnership with the Parks Board, the Parks Master Planning Committee, the Planning and Zoning Commission, and the public have assigned those high priority needs, and other needed items, to the various parks.

High Priority Needs Identified by the Community in the Parks Plan

  • Playground equipment for children 
  • Picnic areas and pavilions
  • Soccer fields
  • Benches and seating areas 
  • Basketball courts
  • Water recreation activities

The site plans are supplemental to a Texas Department of Parks and Wildlife grant and also provide the city with a “roadmap” as to how the community would like to see those parks develop over the years to come.
