The town of Argyle has set a grand opening date for its new park.
The park, currently being called Argyle Community Park, is nearing completion 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 those fields are being upgraded and more amenities have been added, said Town Manager Matt Jones.
Concrete trails meander around the park edges and between the fields. A basketball goal and half-court have been put in, as well as a pavilion, a playground and sand volleyball pit.
Some final irrigation and landscaping details are left to be completed, Jones said. While the town is still unsure about when the park will be made open to the public, a grand opening event is set for May 5.
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.
