Help us Create a New Park - May 2019 Update

Thanks to a generous land donation from one of our community members, we have the opportunity to create a new park area adjacent to Eproson Park in downtown Twain Harte.  The park will be named Twain Harte Meadows and, with your help, will become one of the centerpieces of town. We invite you to dream with us to create a beautiful place that will impact Twain Harte for generations.  Your input is critical to making sure Twain Harte Meadows best serves and reflects our community and families.  

May contain: airport, airfield, outdoors, nature, and landscape

Thank you for your Involvement!

We are delighted with the tremendous community support and input we have received to date.  So far we have had:

  • Park Development Survey - We put out a survey to collect ideas in late 2017 and received an incredible response.  Click HERE for more information and to see the results.
  • Community Design Workshop #1 - We held a community workshop in April 2018 to refine ideas and begin development of a design. The Community Center was packed! Click HERE for more information and to see the results.
  • Community Design Workshop #2 - We held a community workshop in June 2018 at the new park site to view four conceptual design layouts and tour the site.  Attendees saw actual proposed locations of proposed features and made minor revisions to their favorite design option to help us take the next step toward a final design. Click HERE for more information on the four conceptual design layouts.
  • Post-Workshop #2 Survey - We put out a survey following Workshop #2 to collect community input and recommendations on the four conceptual design layouts.  Nearly 100 community members responded, helping us confidently create a refined composite conceptual design layout that best reflects the community's desires. Click HERE to see the survey results.

  • Over 150 Volunteers - More than 150 people have signed up to be involved, from simply being kept informed, to helping with planning, to providing boots-on-the-ground labor. 

Please continue to stay involved as we draw closer to a design that best reflects our community.  See below for the next opportunity to get involved.
