The planned $6.4 million Heroes Park in Colleyville took another step forward during the Dec. 19 council meeting.

Council members approved a contract for $272,800 for the purchase of six bronze statues of United States military service members from the Randolph Rose Collection in Yonkers, New York.

A closer look

The statues will be a mix of men and women, and all of the statues will be standing and saluting. The process to get the statues would be between eight and 14 months, according to documents. Each of the branches of the military will be represented:
  • Air Force
  • Army
  • Coast Guard
  • Marines
  • Navy
  • Space Force
The specifics

The park is located in the south lot next to City Hall, and it will be a space for city events as well. The plaza will include:
  • Stage pavilion
  • Tall memorial walls
  • Low-entry walls
  • Seating walls
  • Flag poles
  • Removable bollards
  • Benches, trash receptacles and water fountain
  • Bronze statues
  • Eternal flame sculpture
  • Landscaping
An open house will be held at 5:30 p.m. Feb. 21 at the Colleyville Center, 5301 Riverwalk Drive, for residents to ask questions and learn more about the park—which is funded through a tax increment financing. Freese and Nichols, the designers of the park since being approved in July, will present 60% plans to council in mid-March, according to city documents.
