Eula Umphress and Robert Hynds Park

UPDATE (01/10/2024):
Exciting progress on the new park. Pond is excavated and local clay soil has been installed for pond lining purposes. Contractor has completed major materials submittals and long lead time items are on order for delivery. Water and sewer improvements are being completed. Contractor is working on schedule.

Van Alstyne Parks & Recreation is adding an incredible new park to our community!  Located just north of the Georgetown Village subdivision, between Kelly Ln. & S. Dallas Ave., this park will be 24 acres and includes a fishing pond, pavilion, playground, restrooms, and plenty of green space, and of course walking trails. In the city’s masterplan, the walking trails will connect all of Van Alstyne’s parks.

A nice feature of this new development in our community is it is fully paid for and will not impact taxes at all!

Van Alstyne City Council awarded the construction contract in September the groundbreaking took place on September 25th. The expected completion date is Spring of 2024!
