Wayne Ferguson Plaza live webcam

Post Date:May 05, 2017

The City of Lewisville has launched its first live webcam. The 24-hour webcam showcases the award-winning Wayne Ferguson Plaza in the heart of historic Old Town Lewisville.

The 1.5-acre urban park is located across the street from Lewisville City Hall and is adjacent to the historic Main Street commercial district and MCL Grand public arts center. Since it opened in 2015, Wayne Ferguson Plaza has been featured in multiple city-sponsored festivals, outdoor events, concert series, and public gatherings.

Inspired by the sculptural manner in which water carves the landscape of the North Texas Tall Grass Prairie, the design takes on a contemporary sweeping gesture using water as a link east to west and unites the plaza with MCL Grand. A linear water feature runs parallel to a boardwalk, guiding residents and guests throughout a garden filled with swathes of native grasses and wildflowers. The water feature is designed as a cooling amenity and a gathering place surrounding the central stage and lawn terraces. At the eastern end of the plaza, water terminates at an interactive fountain. A dual water fall/projection wall serves as a dramatic backdrop and screen for outdoor movies, concerts and other performances.

The final design of Wayne Ferguson Plaza included input from residents and the business community. The launching of this new live webcam is another action step in the Old Town Big Move of the Lewisville 2025 plan. This webcam will allow people to see just how versatile the plaza is and will increase its exposure as a tourist destination.
