The Grove at Shoal Creek’s Public Parks Master Plan
Final Community Input Meeting
Tuesday, May 30, 2017, 7:00-8:30 PM
Bryker Woods Elementary, 3309 Kerbey Lane, Austin, Texas
The Public Parks Master Plan for The Grove at Shoal Creek is being developed collaboratively with the property owner and the Austin Parks and Recreation Department (PARD). Community input is vital to the process with several opportunities to participate. The Master Plan includes a 16.25-acre Signature Park and a Pocket Park. The new facilities must be in compliance with City Parkland Improvement and Operations Agreement for The Grove at Shoal Creek Planned Unit Development (PUD).
This will be the final of three community meetings to solicit input on the draft master plan for the parks. Discussions have included a vision plan and design alternatives for the parks resulting in a Public Parks Master Plan. Once approved by the Director of the Parks and Recreation Department, the Master Plan will guide both initial park improvements constructed by the developer of The Grove at Shoal Creek and future capital improvements to these parks.
The Grove at Shoal Creek is an approximately 76-acre Planned Unit Development (PUD) located just southeast of the corner of Bull Creek Road and West 45th Street. The project will consist of a mix of residential housing types including affordable housing, a mixed-use district with retail and office, and over 20 acres of publicly accessible open space. The PUD zoning for the project, approved by City Council on December 15, 2016, requires the dedication of almost 19 acres of public parks. The Public Parks Master Plan for The Grove at Shoal Creek will guide the development and maintenance of those public parks. The 1-page Parks Plan Exhibit, which is part of that ordinance and describes the specific requirements for parks at The Grove at Shoal Creek, can be found here. Additional details regarding the plans for the overall development can be found on the developer’s website at www.thegroveatshoalcreek.com.
