Central Texas city asking for $22 million for parks

February 9, 2024

The Central Texas city of Lakeway is asking voters to approve a $22 million bond proposition to support a suite of park projects, including construction of separate swim and activity centers. Early voting runs from April 22 to April 30, with election day May 4.

Lakeway City Council members recently signed off on the bond election that – if approved – would set in motion a prioritized list of park improvements starting with Butler Park (Rough Hollow), a $3.3 million project that includes $1.6 million for amenities such as a splashpad, pickleball courts, playground equipment and a ninja obstacle course. The project also calls for concrete trail paving, fitness stations, a pavilion and construction of a restroom building.

Second on the list is a combined $2.6 million project that will add a lazy river, 12-lane lap pool, gym facility, pool equipment, tunnel water slide and bleachers at the Lakeway Swim Center.

Approval would also support a $3.2 million development of Lakeway City Park, including $1.4 million for hardscape infrastructure such as roads and concrete curbs and gutters. Play equipment and a restroom building are also planned.

Plans for the Live Oak Tennis Court call for $1 million to replace existing tennis courts shade canopies, pickleball courts and a restroom building. Other projects include $1.9 million for a North Lakeway Greenbelt project that includes hardscape and 8,600 square feet of boardwalk trail.
