Additions mulled for Keller Sports Park improvement project

Bids opened Nov. 15 for improvements at the Keller Sports Park, a project that will expand oerings and seeks to have area-wide appeal. Keller Community Services Director Cody Maberry said council will consider a guaranteed maximum price for the park as part of its Dec. 5 agenda. Around 25 people attended a public meeting for the park additions on Nov. 2, Maberry said. Ocials are planning many upgrades and renova- tions, such as: • adding a new splash pad • upgrading restrooms throughout the park • replacing backstops for all baseball and softball elds. This list is still subject to change, and council members have not taken their nal votes on issuing debt or awarding the project to a contractor, said Rachel Reynolds, communication and public engagement manager for the city.

“We won’t have a nal gure until bids come in,” Reynolds said, explaining the costs. “The approved budget anticipates issuing about $27 million in debt from the Keller Development Corporation Fund.” What happens next? Ocials will break ground in January. The list of improvements will be approved by council at an upcoming meeting. “This planning process has run about two years, with representatives from each user group and other stakeholders meeting numerous times to craft a project that would provide improvements for all of the park’s participants,” Maberry said in an email. He said city ocials received positive feedback, including about the overall design concepts. “The improvements proposed for the Keller Sports Park will be unlike any other, making it the premier youth sports complex in Dallas-Fort Worth,” Mayor Armin Mizani said in an email.
