City Council Approves Contract for Design for Phase 3 of Bicentennial Park

City Council approved a professional services agreement with Schrickel Rollins, PSC for the design of Bicentennial Park Phase 3.

The improvements are a part of the adopted 2030 Parks, Recreation and Open Space/Community Facilities Plan, which enhances our parks by expanding our facilities and land usage.

The improvements are approved by the Southlake Parks and Development Corporation (SPDC), a City appointed board which administers the City’s half-cent sales tax allocated to parks-related capital projects.

The enhancements included in this project’s design are: renovation of the in-line hockey rink to include synthetic turf, placement of safety netting at the 60/90 baseball field and a renovation of the existing restroom building located at the south end of the Tennis Center.

This project’s design has also been combined with a separate Water Utilities capital project, which is intended to construct a new fence and drive approach to the Bicentennial Water Tower which is also located in the park.

So far, Phase 1 and Phase 2 have both been completed.  Phase 3 is expected to be completed by the end of 2019.
