The city of Highland Village is discussing ways to improve Sunset Point Park.

For years Sunset Point Park in Highland Village has sat undeveloped. The city is in the process of discussing various improvements that can be made to the 1-acre park to enhance it.

The park site, which is located at 400 Edgewater Drive, overlooks Lake Lewisville.

At the Dec. 12 City Council meeting, members were briefed that city staff has tapped the services of Ron Stewart with Environs Group to assist in the development of the master plan for Sunset Point Park. Stewart is a longtime resident of Highland Village and has served as the landscape architect on various projects throughout the city, such as the Veterans Memorial and the FM 2499 Landscape Beautification Project. Stewart also resides in the Clearwater Estates subdivision, which is where the Sunset Point Park site is located.

The master plan recommends the addition of site furnishings, landscaping and improvements necessary to stabilize erosion in order to provide a more welcoming atmosphere and encourage public access and use.
