According to Blackard, the Developer of The Lakes on Legacy, there is a "City Park" to be located off of legacy drive. This park separates two subdivisions - Cheyenne Crossing and Heritage Green. While many of the owners in these subdivisions have been told that this will be The Lakes on Legacy Park, we have yet to see anything done with this land. What can we expect the city to do with this land? When can we expect it to be cleaned up so that it looks like a park and can be enjoyed as such? Does Frisco even have ownership of this land? The park entry from Heritage Green is off of Rusmore and Druid Hills.

Dear Anonymous,

There is a 26-acre tract of land that the City has acquired as a neighborhood park from the developer. There have been some initial improvements to the park which were constructed by the developer and funded by the City. The park has yet to be named and there are currently no funds allocated for further development.

Typically, a park of this classification may have the following: trails, playground, landscaping, parking lot, security lighting, multipurpose court, benches and site furniture. The Parks and Recreation Board reviews the funds they have available and the projects that are needing to be constructed in late summer to fall of the year in preparation for the following years fiscal budget. You are welcome to attend these meeting and can speak during the public input portion of the meeting to voice your wishes.

If you have any additional questions please feel free to contact me at (972) 335-5540 Ext 159.

I am a Heritage Green resident and would be interested in attending these meetings. How can I find out when they are? By attending these meetings can we be sure that the park is included in the next year's budget? Also, can we request or suggest names for the park?

Thanks so much for sharing this information with us. This message board is a great resource!!

There is a 'seasonal pond' also in this area by the park. Is this pond owned by the city as well?

The next Parks and Recreation Board meets on August 8, typically they have regularly scheduled meetings on the second Thursday of each month. They typically meet in the City Council chambers at 7:00. Please call the Parks and Recreation Department secretary in advance if you have any questions regarding that months meeting time, location, or date.

You can request and show support for this project if you so choose, but please be aware that there are other projects in town that have been awaiting funding. The Board is always appreciative of citizens input and appearance.

Again the Board will review all upcoming projects, the needs, and the available funding for park projects throughout the City. If they place that project on the upcoming years budget, City staff will move forward in trying to get the project constructed in a timely manner.

Naming is at the discretion of the Parks and Recreation Board and the City Council, I feel they would be happy to receive any suggestions.

I am not sure of the pond you are speaking of, it has been awhile since I have walked the property. This Park is located along a tributary into Stewart Creek and there will always be seasonal water flowing through the "creek part" of the Park. This will fluctuate based on the time of year and the rains received. The Park is not master planned at this point, but I would suspect that there will be amenities near this area but the City will try to design it to minimize any damages to improvements by water flow.

Feel free to call me if you have any questions. I will be out of town from 8/3-8/8.
