Schertz Parks & Recreation will be holding a Public Meeting on Monday, May 10 to invite residents to share their feedback on the proposed plan for Hilltop/Homestead Park located at the 6300 Block of Jimmy Walker Dr. The meeting will be held from 5:30 - 6:30 p.m. at the North Center, 3501 Morning Drive, Schertz, TX 78108.
City staff is working on a new community park in the northern region of Schertz between the Fairhaven and The Links at Scenic Hills neighborhoods and the new Homestead development. The city has owned an undeveloped 8.37-acre parcel known informally as “Hilltop Park” for over a decade. The respective Homeowner’s Associations (HOAs) for the surrounding neighborhoods own 3 contiguous parcels of 8.08 acres, 7.27 acres, and 6.07 acres, and city staff is working with those HOAs to donate the parcels to the project to be used as a match for grant funds for the development of this park. Also included in the project is the approximately 15- acre park that is being dedicated to the city with the Homestead development. The new combined community park will have a total of 45 acres and will remain a largely nature-based park. Early conceptual plans call for a hilltop overlook/observation platform, a fishing pond with pier, walking trails, mountain biking trails, nature-based playscape, picnic pavilions, restrooms, and interpretative signage.
If you are unable to attend the public meeting, questions and feedback can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
