As businesses, restaurants and city facilities slowly begin reopening during the coronavirus pandemic, Pflugerville residents will soon have a new park to enjoy. Pflugerville's Wilbarger Creek Park project is on track for an early August opening, city spokesperson Maggie Holman confirmed in a May 12 email.

Construction on the city's Wilbarger Creek Park project began in September following Pflugerville City Council's approval of the park plan in March 2019. Located at the southwest corner of Kingston Lacy Boulevard and Craters of the Moon Boulevard, the park's planned amenities include playgrounds, practice fields, an outdoor classroom space, trails and a youth Veloway. The youth Veloway is a cycling track for nonmonitorized wheeled vehicles.

The park was included in the city's Trails Master Plan & Undeveloped Parks Study conducted in 2014. Funding for the site is provided by both the Parkland Dedication funds and the city's 2014 bond, per a September 12 city news release.

Pflugerville City Council approved playground equipment for the park at its April 14 meeting in the amount of $130,000.

Space: 104.42 acres total; city is developing 10.5 acres
