This project will design and construct improvements to Bub Williamson Park, located at 530 Grapevine Road. The intent is to repurpose the existing, underutilized site with new amenities. Proposed improvements at this time include a remodeled restroom building, dog park and children's play areas.
Additionally, new drought tolerant landscaping, irrigation, signage, fencing and rehabilitation of the existing parking lot are proposed. The park facilities will be upgraded to meet current Americans with Disability Act standards and will include new sidewalks. Site furnishings would be upgraded throughout the park including picnic tables, benches and trash/recycling receptacles, bicycle racks, and drinking fountains.
