The construction of the next public park at Mueller is underway. Town Center Park will be built on the northern end of the Aldrich Street mixed-use district at Aldrich and Philomena streets, and will reflect the diverse patrons who will utilize it. The new park advances the development’s larger sustainability goals, which include the preservation and expansion of green space.
The seventh public park in Mueller, Town Center Park will be an active 3.5-acre open green space located just three blocks from Dell Children’s Medical Center and three blocks from the Thinkery on the northern end of Aldrich Street.
The new open space will feature a “prospect hill,” approximately 15-feet high, that will allow visitors elevated views of the park. Beyond its prospect hill, Town Center Park will include a water feature that will emulate the way water flows in Central Texas: with a push of a button, park goers will be able to operate interactive jets that represent rain. The water will then channel through an area that resembles a Hill Country stream before the water shoots out of “limestone cliffs,” offering an interactive experience.
Town Center Park will include sand volleyball courts, an enclosed dog-run and a flexible area for social games like Bocce. A 10-foot wide trail and an exercise/stretching area will also include a bicycle care station alongside bike racks. A nearby set of restrooms will feature a landscaped rooftop.
A children’s playground, sensory gardens and rain gardens will join nearly 220 new trees around an open lawn area suitable for family picnics, flying a kite or playing catch. The park is scheduled to be completed later in 2018.
Town Center Park is the latest development surrounding Mueller’s Aldrich Street, a vibrant activity hub in the heart of the master-planned Mueller community. Recently, Alamo Drafthouse opened, Catellus broke ground on Texas Mutual’s headquarters, and a number of fitness operators and local restaurants have announced their first location or expansion to the district. The district is also home to the Thinkery, a number of local businesses, three multi-family communities, Lake Park and Mueller’s welcome center.
