Submit names for Pfuture Pflugerville Parks including the sports complex
After voters approved a parks bond in 2014, the city purchased more than 230 acres in east Pflugerville on Cameron Road for a future community park and sports complex. Now the park, which will be home to sports fields and league play, recreation areas, trails and more, is in need of a name.
Submit name recommendations for the park to firstname.lastname@example.org. Park names are also needed for two new parks under development in Highland Park and Stone Hill.
Ideas will be compiled and given to City Council for consideration. By submitting a name, you are releasing it to the city for use on this and/or future projects. Email your names today!
