Pflugerville Parks & Trails
Large-Scale Planning for Community Park & Trail System
The Park Development Plans and Trails Master Plan is aimed at guiding future development of the City’s park and trail system. The first component of the project involved the creation of a city-wide Trails Master Plan, which will determine future trail projects and trail design standards. For the second component of the project, RVi created conceptual master plans for 14 individual city parks. The parks ranged in size from small pocket parks to a large, 100-acre community park. RVi led stakeholder and public input exercises to determine what amenities would be most appropriate for each park. Public input indicated interest in a community garden, prairie restoration, opportunities for nature play, and incorporation of public art.
RVi’s work on this project interfaced directly with the City’s recently-completed comprehensive Parks and Open Space Master Plan, and set expectations and priorities for enhancement of the community’s park and trail system. Early goals include creating strong trail connections throughout the community, providing access to nearby creeks, and incorporating sustainable design strategies for long-term water use planning.
