Arlington Parks and Rec: Meadowbrook Master Plan Public Meeting - Arlington

May 11 2023 - 6:00pm to 7:30pm
Meadowbrook Recreation Center
1400 Dugan St
Arlington , TX

The City of Arlington is developing a Master Plan for Meadowbrook Park, Arlington’s first park that opened in 1924. In advance of the centennial celebration in 2024, Arlington Parks and Recreation has contracted with Kimley-Horn and Associates in the preparation of the master plan, and we are excited to receive your feedback on potential park amenities at one of three scheduled open houses. Details for those public meetings are listed below.

The existing park is approximately 52 acres, inclusive of the park, golf course, and Eunice Activity Center. The amenities for the park will be determined by the City, consultant, stakeholder groups, and public through facilitated meetings, illustrated on the concept plan, and programmed into the final document.

This is the third and final meeting.
