Editor's Note: This article, originally published Feb. 17, was updated March 23 to reflect the new date for the third and final public meeting. The last meeting is scheduled for 6 p.m. May 11 at the Meadowbrook Activity Center, 1400 Dugan St. The article was updated April 6 with new contact information for residents to provide feedback.

Help us re-imagine Meadowbrook Park! The City of Arlington is developing a Master Plan for Meadowbrook Park, Arlington’s first park that opened in 1924.

In advance of the centennial celebration in 2024, Arlington Parks and Recreation has contracted with Kimley-Horn and Associates in the preparation of the master plan, and we are excited to receive your feedback on potential park amenities at one of three scheduled open houses. The first two public meetings will be held from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Feb. 23 and March 8 at the Levitt Center at Levitt Pavilion Arlington, 100 W. Abram St. in Downtown. The third public meeting is set for 6 p.m. May 11 at the Meadowbrook Activity Center, 1400 Dugan St.

The existing Meadowbrook Park is approximately 52 acres, inclusive of the park, golf course and Eunice Activity Center. The amenities for the park will be determined by the City, consultant, stakeholder groups, and public through facilitated meetings, illustrated on the concept plan, and programmed into the final document. The scope of work for Kimley-Horn and Associates includes physical site inventory and base map preparation, research history of park, research of comparable facilities, opportunities and constraints diagram, proposed programmatic plan, master plan development, stakeholder/public meetings, cost estimate and phasing diagram, and implementation plan.

The phase-1 development portion of the project includes design with the goal of constructing a physical improvement to the park to coincide with the centennial celebration in 2024. This portion of the work includes preparation of construction documents, bid phase services, and construction contract administration services. Kimley-Horn and Associates, Inc., was selected to design this project through the annual RFQ process.

If you are unable to attend one of the public meetings, but still want to provide input, please contact Parks Assistant Director Michael Debrecht at 817-459-5499 or [email protected], or write a letter to Michael at Arlington Parks and Recreation Department, 717 W. Main St., Arlington, TX 76013.
