Natural Landmark: Town Green Park to be 'great' addition to vibrant downtown

The groundbreaking for Town Green Park, which will be The Woodlands' 100th park, was held Friday morning in Town Center. The $3.5 million project will be contained within four acres located near the South Montgomery County Library on The Woodlands Waterway, and will eventually serve as a stop along The Waterway for water taxis, and for the new Town Center trolleys.

"Every vibrant downtown has to have a great park, and this is it," said Frank Robinson, president of the Town Center Improvement District. "It will be great for people who live here in Town Center and those who come to visit."

A "vibrant downtown" has to have green space. This park will utilize a significant amount of green space within Town Center, said TCID President Bob Kinnear.

The centerpiece of the park will be its "Great Lawn," which will be a long, open community gathering area. This area will be nearly the length of two football fields.

The park will also have a children's area on the western side called The Children's Garden that will feature contemporary excerpts of Aesop's Fables on large permanent storybooks.

"We are thrilled to be part of such a wonderful addition to The Woodlands Town Center," said Thomas D'Alesandro, president and CEO of The Woodlands Development Company.

Robinson said he expects Town Green to become a natural landmark in the heart of Town Center that residents are sure to enjoy. It will be a nice place for families with children to hang out as well, he said, since the children's area will have an amphitheatre large enough for at least 50 children.

"Town Green Park will be a great addition to the area and we are pleased that children and their families will be able to access a literature-friendly park right in our backyard," said Bonnie Boorman, South Montgomery County Library branch manager.

TWDC donated the land to TCID for the park and is handling construction, which is scheduled to be completed in late 2005 or early 2006.

"That's no small donation for the development company considering the cost for land in Town Center," Robinson said.

Land is currently selling in Town Center for approximately $300 per square foot, D'Alesandro said.

"The development company is best credited for what it didn't do," he said, referring to the natural and open areas within The Woodlands and Town Center. When Town Center is finished, it will retain 28 percent open space.

TCID is paying TWDC for construction costs associated with the project. SWA group of Houston is designing the park and Miner-Dederick Constructors is the general contractor.

Town Green Park groundbreaking was originally planned for August 2004, but delays pushed the project back to February. The TCID has been working toward the construction of the park for a total of five years. Robinson said the process leading up to Friday's groundbreaking has been kind of like giving birth.
