Staff to Discuss Rheudasil Park Master Plan at Dec. 6 Parks Board Meeting

Flower Mound Parks and Recreation staff will present an overview of the Rheudasil Park conceptual master plan at the Park Board meeting on Thursday, December 6 at 6 p.m. at Town Hall, 2121 Cross Timbers Rd. The public is invited to attend the meeting and provide comments during the public comments section of the agenda. This meeting will not be broadcast live due to equipment transition to the new Town Hall. However, staff will manually record the meeting and it will be available on the website at a later date.

The overview will include an update on the work that was completed since the conceptual master plan’s approval in December 2014, including the pond dredging and bank stabilization that was completed in May. The significant dredging and bank stabilization was several years in the making due to its large scope, and needed to be complete prior to further upgrades. The presentation will also provide a quick review of the process the Town followed to create the master plan, provide examples of the new amenities, and discuss future completion timelines.

Pink Evening Primrose Trail


Pink Evening Primrose TrailSegment 1 of the Pink Evening Primrose Trail is currently under construction. The new 8' wide concrete trail will connect to the crossing at Morriss that makes a connection to the Riverwalk Development. It will then meander through the open field and behind the daycare facility to Timber Creek. It will run north on the west side of Timber Creek to College, replacing the existing sidewalk, and then on up to connect to the existing 8' trail behind Lamar Middle School. While the west side of Timber Creek is under construction, people will be directed to use the east side of Timber Creek. The entire project is projected to be complete by the end of October 2018. Should you have any questions, contact Kari Biddix, Park Development Manager, at (972) 874-6278

Heritage Park Phase IV


In April of 2018, the Town of Flower Mound along with North Rock Construction started constructing Phase IV of Heritage Park. This phase includes over a mile of 8 foot multipurpose trail, wildflower areas, nature observation platform, entry signs, sundial entry circle, kiosk station with trellis, wildlife encounter stations with interpretive signage, an 18-basket disc golf course, parking, lighting, irrigation, and landscaping.

The wildlife encounter nature trail is going to be a great feature of Phase IV. The trail will be concrete that is stamped and colored to blend in with the natural surroundings to provide a safe and accessible trail. Along the path, park users will encounter life size bronze sculptures of indigenous animals to the Flower Mound area such as bobcats, deer, and coyotes. In addition, there will be interpretive signage of each animal that will include pictures, facts and descriptions, as well as life size paw prints that the patron can then use to find the location of the print in the nature trail. There will be a total of 12 bronze sculptures with the opportunity to add more in the future.

The Town expects to have the bulk of this phase completed by early January and all the bronze sculptures installed by the spring of 2019. This final phase will complete the Master Plan for Heritage Park which officially opened to the public on October 20, 2012. The Parks and Recreation Department looks forward to seeing residents enjoy the park and its many amenities for years to come!
