A little more than a year after a groundbreaking ceremony, Glory Park, also known Parque La Gloria, is open in Lewisville.

The city held a ribbon cutting ceremony on June 15.

The gist

The $3 million project features two playground structures, a fitness station, multiple shade structures and trails to the property. The walking trail at the park was still blocked off during the ceremony.

The background

The Lewisville Parks and Recreation Department held a groundbreaking ceremony on April 29, 2023 for the project.

The park’s creation helps fulfill Lewisville’s goal of providing a park within a 10-minute walk of every resident.

The Glory/La Gloria neighborhood includes approximately 5,100 residents adjacent to the park, according to the plan’s document.

What else?

In February 2023, Lewisville City Council adopted Explore More Lewisville, a 10-year action plan that will guide the development and management of parks and recreation facilities, trails, tree canopy investments, and open space.
