Pflugerville's Parks and Recreation Department completed upgrades to Creekside Park's 21-year-old playground equipment in mid-November as part of the city's annual playground replacement program.

Located at 418 Settlers Valley Drive, Pflugerville, the renovated play space has a new play area for children ages 2-5 and one for ages 5-12 that includes swings and a shade structure, city spokesperson Maggie Holman said. Purchase and installation of the new playground equipment cost roughly $148,000 and was approved by Pflugerville City Council on July 28.


Alongside Creekside Park's upgraded amenities, work on Wilbarger Creek Park is substantially complete and open for public use, Holman said. Wilbarger Creek Park, located at 1211 Kingston Lacy Blvd., features an amphitheater, a cycling track for non-motorized vehicles, trails and undeveloped parkland. Additional enhancements are still being installed at Wilbarger Creek Park, including trash cans and water fountains.

Pflugerville City Council approved a construction contract for the park in March 2019, to the tune of approximately $1.6 million. Funds were derived from the city's 2014 bond election via parkland dedication funds.
