Nature-themed upgrades for Flower Mound’s Pecan Orchard Park are complete, replacing an older playground structure installed in the early 2000s. The $250,000 project was approved by Flower Mound Town Council in September 2019 when the fiscal year 2019-20 budget was approved, communications specialist Abby Aldrich said in an email. Purchase of the playground equipment was approved at the Nov. 16 Town Council regular meeting, she said.
Construction on the park, located at 4700 Mesquite St., was set to start in spring 2021, according to the town of Flower Mound’s website.
The playground includes play structures for ages 2-5 and 5-12, swings, a see-saw and a merry-go-round. The park also features synthetic turf surfacing and shade for the play structures and benches.
