The proposed 2019 Bond Program would provide funding for the acquisition of land and interests in land for the development of current or future parks.
In evaluating land for parks, a number of factors may be considered by the City Council including the level of tree coverage provided, unique land features, connections to the existing multiuse trail network, locations underserved by parks, and overall proximity to residences. Over 40 properties have been identified by the City of Denton for potential purchase and conversion into a city park.
