Park & Trail Improvements

The Parks and Recreation Division is working hard to enhance the quality of life for Flower Mound residents, including updating and renovating many Flower Mound playgrounds and parks.

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.

Rheudasil, Wilkerson, and Cortadera Parks Pond Improvements

Families Participating in Kid Fish Event at Rheudasil Park
Cortadera Pond dredging, fountain, and aeration system installation is complete.

Rheudasil Pond dredging and bank stabilization is complete. We are waiting for the sod to establish and for the pond to fill with water via rainfall. Once the pond fills to an acceptable level, the fish will be restocked. If the pond does not fill to the proper level by the end of April, the fish restocking will be postponed to October or November because it will become too hot.

Wilkerson Pond dredging is complete and the fountain/aeration system installation will be complete by the end of February.
