Help us Create a New Park - Update 3/16

THE MARCH 17TH COMMUNITY FORUM IS CANCELLED

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.  

Check out our flier to learn more about the new park, our vision, development guidelines, current community ideas and next steps:

Thank you for taking our Survey!

Our recent survey to rate and gather ideas for Twain Harte Meadows Park was a great success - we received more than 460 surveys. Those surveys included more than 35 new ideas and the names of more than 150 people who are interested in helping out in some way.  Thank you to all who participated!

Check out the survey results:

TH Meadows Survey Results

 

Our Park and Recreation Committee and Board of Directors met twice in early January to review the survey results and to consider new ideas brought forth in the surveys.  The purpose of the meetings was to refine the list of ideas for consideration at an upcoming community forum.  25 ideas will continue on for consideration by the community. 21 ideas were removed from the list for various reasons, such as lack of space, facilities already exist, contrary to land donor's wishes, lack of community support and too much liability.
