Total value of Proposition #2 is $39,900,000 for Parks and Recreation Facilities. There are four proposed projects contained within this proposition.

____________________________________________________________________

Multigenerational Recreation Center --- $25,100,000

Memorial Park Recreation Center is 18,000 square feet and was completed in 1999. The adjacent Senior Activity Center is 10,000 square feet and was completed in 1997.

If funded, this project would incorporate the existing Memorial Park Rec Center and Senior Activity Center, a combined 28,000 square feet into a 72,000-square-foot Multi-Generational Center. There would be dedicated space for an Active Aging Center larger than the current Senior Activity Center, a family lounge, gymnasiums, child care area, indoor playground, other recreation center amenities, a indoor walking trail, and increased parking.

This project also includes $246,079 for permanent public art integrated into the facility, and $355,000 for features connecting the facility site to the future nature park across Valley Parkway.

These images represent a concept plan for the facility - actual design may vary.

The first image shows the current Senior Activity Center and Memorial Park Recreation Center in red, and the anticipated footprint of the proposed Multi-Generational Recreation Center in white. The existing structures would be modified and incorporated into the new building.

Trail Design and Development --- $7,100,000


The city has adopted a Trails Master Plan designed to connect major destination and service points with residential areas and to integrate Lewisville’s trails into regional trails in neighboring cities. 

If approved, this proposition would be used to fund major “spine” trails described in the Trails Master Plan. Specific trail segments could change depending upon traffic and development patterns, and the ability to obtain outside funding.  This project also includes $139,216 for permanent public art integrated along the trail system.

Sample projects reviewed by the Blue Ribbon Capital Projects Committee include trails that would reach Valley Ridge Greenbelt, DTCA Hebron Station, Central Park, LLELA Nature Preserve, LISD Outdoor Learning Area, and trailheads in neighboring cities.
