Bagby Park On Gray Street

Recommended Posts

Is the new midtown park fully open?  The chain link fence is gone, people are using it, but one of the gates to the dog run is padlocked.  (There's two gates but only one is padlocked)

I prefer a taco chilangos over the oversized ones from the Austin and Dallas transplant taco places. First time I went to Torchy's I ordered 3 of them not realizing that were burrito sized. Not that they weren't good but...damn I can't eat that much.

Nice! - looks like they are re-doing the park as well? fences off heavy equipment / midtown sign covered


Anybody know what is going on here?


Also the “For Lease” sign is still up on Rico’s ... seems strange if La Calle has committed.

Thank you Crockpot, I just saw that and of course came right here.


I think it's worth noting from the article how much interest there was in the location and the other work going on at the park (a canopy and lighting over the stage and lawn modifications) from an article in the HBJ:


Owner Ramon Soriano Tomka’s business was chosen out of 300 total initial applicants, he said. Those 300 were whittled down to 20 applicants chosen to provide a business plan and then eight finalist. In addition to updating the food kiosk, the Midtown Redevelopment Authority also is upgrading Bagby Park with changes such as the addition of a canopy and lighting to the stage, enhancing outdoor performances and lawn modifications, according to a June 9 blog post. The 5,000-square-foot dog park will remain open during the project, which is expected to be completed this fall.
