Project News and Information
The June 1 meeting was live-streamed on Youtube and available for playback for additional information on the project.
This project includes master planning for the overall community park and design and construction administration for the early completion of a practice facility to be built on city-owned property off of Cameron Road at 1124 Town Center Drive.
The consulting firm of Schrickel, Rollins and Associates (SRA) was selected to assist the City with the master planning efforts for the park in January 2016.
Working cooperatively with the City’s Capital Improvement Program staff, the Parks and Recreation Department, and the citizens of Pflugerville, SRA is currently developing a community park master plan and will be designing a practice facility as soon as the plan is adopted.

Project Schedule and Status
The City of Pflugerville celebrates the groundbreaking of 1849 Park on Monday, November 7 at 11 a.m. at the park location at 1124 Town Center Drive. Mayor Jeff Coleman, Councilmember Wayne Cooper, city officials, the Master Plan Advisory Committee and the Parks and Recreation Commission will officially break ground on the 1849 Park and Sports Complex.
The groundbreaking is the launch of Phase 1 of the park which includes approximately $10 million for construction of six multi-purpose fields for sports like lacrosse, rugby and soccer, as well as three football fields, parking, restrooms and a playground. The first step in developing Phase 1 involves significant site work including movement of dirt, irrigation, utility improvements and planting of turf for the fields.
The cost to develop and build the 323-acre park's master plan is $61 million, thus the park will be built in phases.
Staff presented the final master plan to City Council for approval at their June 14, 2016 meeting.
City staff hosted a public meeting on June 1 at the Pflugerville Library to discuss the 1849 Park Master Plan. Three different concepts for the park were presented to the public and the City Council at previous meetings. The City's design consultant consolidated the plans and formed one preliminary master plan for the park. The master plan includes components from each of the three original park concepts.
The first phase of development is estimated to cost $10.15 million and construction anticipated to start in the fall of six multi-purpose fields for sports like lacrosse, rugby and soccer, as well as three football fields, parking, restrooms and a playground.
Staff presented the most recent design composite for the sports complex and community park to City Council on April 26. After reviewing options available and the budget, the City Council directed staff to put together a $10 million plan for Phase 1 the sports complex. The complete proposed design for the park includes multi-purpose fields, baseball and softball fields, archery areas, tennis courts, fenced football fields with a track, and trails meandering throughout the complex. To the north, the proposed design includes recreation opportunities including a festival area, nature walk, splash pad, dog park, and incorporates the historic Pfluger Cemetery and Pfluger House.
Since the cost to complete the park is $61 million, the park will be built in phases. The City Council directed staff to allocate $10 million from the 2014 parks bond, that was approved by the voters, to implement a Phase 1 sports complex. The proposed Phase 1 includes six multi-purpose fields that can accommodate lacrosse, rugby, and soccer, and three football fields and parking to accommodate league play. There is an open house on the project on June 1 at 6 p.m. at the library. The project will return to city council on June 14 as the city continues to work towards a final design.

Feb. 24 and Feb. 25

The project will include a master plan for the community park and design and construction of the first phases of the Sports Complex. Funding for the complex was approved by voters in the 2014 General Bond Election.
