The park cost about $11.49 million—$5.3 million for the land acquisition, $5.02 million to build and $1.18 million for design-related services. It features a path system, a playground, a 2-acre pond with a boardwalk and 1.5-acre dog park that will be split into two sections for small and large dogs, Community Impact Newspaper reported.
"It is an incredibly gorgeous park. If you want your zen moments, you'll be able to have it there," Garcia said. "It's just a beautiful, beautiful place, and I'm just so anxious to finally get it open."
Although Atascocita Park, which is located just south of West Lake Houston and Will Clayton parkways, was completed in April, county officials held off the park's opening due to the coronavirus, Precinct 2 officials said.
Precinct 2 Communications Director Frida Villalobos said they will be asking parkgoers to practice social distancing and wear face masks to help curb the spread of the coronavirus.
Correction: The total cost of the park has increased to include design-related services.
