Highland Village City Council approved a contract during its Aug. 10 meeting to purchase and install security cameras at Unity Park.

Cameras will be installed at various locations at the park, including the parking lots, Director of Information Services Sunny Lindsey said. The cameras will also record footage for up to three

weeks and automatically delete any footage older than three weeks, saving the city from needing to manually delete old footage, she said.

The previous video camera system at the park was identified for replacement in 2018, according to a city staff memo from the meeting. Officials decided to wait until the Kids Kastle playground project and ponds were completed before installing the new equipment, the memo stated.

Funds for the $56,047 contract will come from voter-approved bonds.

Unity Park is a 38-acre community park off of Briarhill Boulevard. The park’s amenities include sports fields and courts, a dog park, the Kids Kastle playground, and walking trails.
