San Gabriel Park improvements near the intersection of Austin Avenue and FM 971 will begin on Monday, July 14. The improvements will include relocation of the granite trail, soccer field four, and other elements including baseball back stops and exercise equipment. This project is in coordination with Transportation Services and is necessary for the future FM 971 road improvements which are scheduled for the next 12-18 months.
Soccer field four will be relocated near the existing field one and will be irrigated and sodded. The trail will be reconfigured, but will remain the same length as it is currently. Our goal is to minimize the impact to trail users for the duration of construction which is scheduled to be completed in mid-September. Landscape and irrigation will then begin in October. We will keep everyone informed when it is necessary to divert users to the new section of trail.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your patience. For more information, please contact Georgetown Parks & Recreation at (512) 930-3595.
