The Midlothian Community Park will enhance the beauty of Midlothian, address the need for youth and adult sport leagues and organizations, provide an unsurpassed special event location, offer a broad range of recreational amenities and support a higher quality of life. All aspects of this project will be reviewed by the Parks Board for their recommendations and acted upon by City Council.
The future Midlothian Community Park will conceptually include the following elements:
Basketball and tennis courts
Fishing Pond and Amphitheatre
Status: The City has secured the purchase of two tracts of land, approximately 155 acres in size, which will serve as the site for a new community park. The land is located east of FM 663 and north of Ashford Lane just south of the Lawson Farms subdivision. The land was purchased with monies from the citizen-approved 2006 bond package. The first public meeting was held on July 11, 2011. A presentation was made to the public to give a conceptual overview of the park and solicit input. In March 2013, the Midlothian City Council approved funding through the issuance of the $7.8 million general obligation bond.
