Twin Coves Park Boat Ramp - Currently Closed
Due to the extensive rainfall over the past several weeks, the lake level on Grapevine Lake has reached a critical point and is currently several feet over the boat ramp.  For the safety of all boaters, The Town of Flower Mound has closed the boat ramp at Twin Coves Park.   With the anticipation of more rain over the next 7-10 days the Town anticipates that the boat ramp will be closed for an extended period of time.

Twin Coves Park - Temporarily Closing Due to High Water
The Town of Flower Mound Parks and Recreation Division will temporarily close Twin Coves Park as the U.S. Corp of Engineers has indicated that Grapevine Lake could rise to a level which will make access to the park very difficult.  The Town anticipates the Park will close to all users on Wednesday, May 13.  We apologize for any inconvenience this closure  may cause and hope to reopen the park as soon as the lake recedes to a level that allows safe access.  Please call 972-874-6300 or visit
www.flower-mound.com/parks for updates regarding the park and boat ramp closures.


Flower Mound Parks and Recreation Win Gold Medal Award

Gold Medal AwardThe Town of Flower Mound was recently recognized for its excellence in the field of Parks and Recreation Management by the Texas Recreation and Parks Society (TRAPS). The Town was selected to receive the 2015 Texas Gold Medal Award, which honors communities throughout the state that demonstrate excellence in long-range planning, resource management, community programs and events, marketing efforts, and agency recognition during the last three years.

Flower Mound is the only Class III city (Populations 50,001 to 100,000) in the state to receive this designation in 2015. The TRAPS award was officially presented at the TRAPS Annual Institute in Abilene on March 5, and a presentation was made at the Town's PALS Board meeting on March 17 (pictured).  

Tails are Wagging After Council Approves Plans for Flower Mound's First Dog Park

Four-legged Flower Mound residents will soon have a place to run, bark, and play following Council approval of the design plan for the upcoming five-acre dog park to be located in Heritage Park East, at the northeast corner of Garden Ridge Boulevard and Spinks Road. The plan includes designated areas for large and small dogs, in addition to a black vinyl coated fence, signage, turf, irrigation, benches, a water fountain, pet waste stations, and 40 parking spaces. The dog park is expected to be complete by November 2015.

Rheudasil Park Pond Improvements

During the May 4 Town Council meeting, Council members approved vital upgrades that will greatly enhance the aquatic health of Rheudasil Park Pond, including:
  • Bank Stabilization: Slope revetment structures will be installed around the entire pond to combat erosion and turn steep inclines around the shoreline into gradual slopes. A small section of the northern side of the pond will have a combination of slope revetment and retaining wall installed as the bank is most steep there, and revetment alone will not be effective. Bank stabilization not only stops the banks from eroding outward into the park, it increases accessibility for residents to utilize the shores of the ponds for fishing or other activities.
  • Mechanical Dredging: Over time, sediment from litter, runoff, bacteria and other factors begins to settle on the bottom of any pond. As this sediment continues to build upward, the aquatic health of the pond can become threatened, thus mechanical dredging is needed to restore the pond’s natural bottom. The mechanical dredging of Rheudasil Park Pond would only occur in the northern section of the pond, where it is the deepest. That particular area is drained; the sediment is dug out using excavators, loaded into sealed trucks and hauled off site. Fish and other aquatic wildlife are confined to a cofferdam (a small pond within the pond) during the course of dredging.

Town Engineers and Park Development staff will be working together to coordinate this project. The design phase will begin this summer, with the anticipated start of construction late summer or fall of 2016.
