Parks and recreation Advisory Board

Director of Public Works Dane Rau (center) addressed the Parks and Recreation Advisory Board Wednesday at the Blue Bell Aquatic Center about upcoming projects in the city of Brenham.

The future Brenham Family Park will begin the first steps of construction in August of 2021 after the city of Brenham was awarded a matching grant of $750,000 from the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. Phase I of park construction is estimated at $1.7 million.

Director of Public Works Dane Rau said plans for the proposed lake structure are close to being finalized, which will be the first thing the city constructs at the park. Other amenities include one mile of hike and bike trail looping around the pond, parking lot, lighting and bathrooms.
