    Making the Park Unique

    The new Travis Bryan Midtown Park will be a world-class destination featuring outdoor athletic fields, indoor recreation facilities and nature-based recreation opportunities. And integrated social and ecological approach that promotes public health, cultural awareness and environmental stewardship is desired. In addition, the new park must be unique in purpose as well as design to provide a catalyst for the positive redevelopment of the entire Midtown corridor.

    Programming directives, identified throughout the process, are summarized under the attributes of function, form, economy and time. They include, but are not limited to, the following:


    • Bryan desires to create a world-class destination that is also an amenity for the local community
    • Consider access and programs for all individuals in the community
    • Consider an integrated ecological approach that preserves existing habitat and offers opportunities for education as well as interactive experiences with nature
    • Consider safety throughout the site and delineate certain areas, inside and outside, for certain activities or groups


    • Park will be both a regional destination and a significant local amenity and the quality of design and construction must be of a high level
    • Operation and maintenance considerations such as access, specialized equipment, and storage must also be considered
    • Plan for the long-term commitment for high quality programs and facilities


    • The former golf course topography, existing vegetation, lake, and surrounding community create exceptional forces to which the park plan must respond
    • Design must seek to minimize environmental impacts and consider sustainable design practices and possible third party certifications from agencies such as the US Green Building Council LEED or SITES program
    • Create a place of lasting beauty that makes people want to visit


    • The park must be built in phases, the Master Plan must identify the common support facilities, utilities and other amenities to serve all phases equally
    • Phasing should be designed to provide fully functional facilities at each stage of development
