Big changes are coming for Missouri City’s Sta-Mo Sports Park, including the addition of more sports fields, which could begin as early as 2025.

A closer look

At a May 20 Missouri City City Council meeting, council members voted to approve an interlocal agreement with Fort Bend County for the $15 million redevelopment of the park, located at 1917 Moore Road, Missouri City.

The park will see new features, including:
  • Outdoor pickleball courts
  • Baseball and softball diamonds
  • Multiuse sports fields
  • A cricket field
  • Gathering spaces
  • A playground
  • A pump track
  • A splashpad
  • Infrastructure improvements and utility adjustments
  • Wayfinding signs
  • A trail
Daniele Stewart, interim director of parks and recreation, said funding from the project comes from multiple sources, including:Also on the agenda

City Council also approved a new $1.3 million contract with Anchor Construction Management for the company to finish construction on Troxell Park, near the Park’s Edge neighborhood.

Since the initial project contract from 2021 expired when the project faced rain and site delays, Stewart said the new contract will address a construction timeline extension as well as additional concrete work.

According to agenda documents, Troxell Park will include:
  • Parking
  • Lighting
  • A playground
  • Pavilions
  • Barbecue grills
  • An irrigation system
The park is in its final stages of construction, which should be finalized the week of May 20, and is expected to open in late July or early August, Stewart said.

“Now that we are into summer, we’ll have to give the site a few weeks to settle once they do grass implants,” Stewart said.

What’s next

Sta-Mo Sports Park is in the design phase, with competitive bidding for construction anticipated in early fall, Stewart said. Construction is expected to begin in spring 2025, and officials expect to open the park in early 2026.
