League Park will be closed to the public starting Wednesday, February 5 as crews begin work to give the park a complete face lift with a new look and feel. The highly anticipated revitalization project will give the park an improved open design and a lawn area that will be used to host future events. The park’s pavers will be replaced in a layout that is more user friendly for park goers, and the park’s tree canopy will be accented with additional landscape beds along the perimeters. Lighting of the park will be enhanced with new decorative light poles and catenary lighting over a large paver section in the center of the park. The drainage improvement work includes tying into the existing storm sewer on Park Avenue, installation of storm sewer along Railroad Avenue and Coryell Street, and pavement improvements above the storm sewer.
Construction is anticipated to be completed by November 2020, just in time for the city’s Holiday in the Park festivities. The park will be completely fenced off to the public until all construction is completed. Once work is finished, League Park is will serve as a center for recreational interests for residents, including community concerts, markets, festivals and more.
