The 158-acre Riverwalk at Central Park development will soon be highlighted by the grand opening of the Riverwalk Chapel and Water Works Hall on Aug. 3.

The 210-person chapel and similarly sized event hall will provide a flexible space for weddings as well as rotary clubs, churches and other organizations in town, manager Michael Hallford said.

“There is nothing that’s going to be lacking or that you’re going to want that’s not going to be here,” Hallford said. “We want this to feel like a place people can come where they’ll have a team that will make it work for them.”

Anchored by Texas Health and the Courtyard by Marriott, the chapel and event space are providing a bridge to the next phase of development at the Riverwalk.

According to Economic Development Director Andrea Roy, the town of Flower Mound has issued three restaurant permits for Restaurant Row, to Primo’s, Tillman’s and Scout.


Construction is underway on an 8,000-plus square-foot building at 4120 River Walk Drive that will house Primo’s, but no inspections have been performed since March, and a permit was last issued for Tillman’s at 4100 River Walk Drive in February, she said.

At the Scout location, 4110 River Walk Drive, “there could be some live music based on the plans, as well as some open areas that could house moveable items, such as pool or ping pong tables,” Roy said.

Site plans have also been submitted to city officials for the proposed farmer’s market, splash pad, promenade and amphitheater projects, and construction work has begun on the new Home2Suites hotel, she said.

Hotel and restaurant partners will be a big part of the new chapel and event hall’s business, Hallford said.

As of now, the chapel has plans to book guests from Jan. 1, 2021, onward, Hallford said. Events will then be backdated to the current date based on restrictions due to COVID-19 orders
