Work has begun on Argyle’s first park.
The park, currently being called Argyle Community Park, will be along the south side of Crawford Road, just west of the railroad tracks. The land is owned by Argyle ISD and had some ball fields on it, but soon those fields will be upgraded and more amenities will be added, said Town Manager Matt Jones.
Concrete trails will meander around the park edges and between the fields. A basketball goal and half-court will be put in, as well as a pavilion, a playground and sand volleyball pit.
The town received and matched a $500,000 grant from Texas Parks and Wildlife for the park and entered into a long-term lease with Argyle ISD.
The park is expected to be completed in the first months of January.
