Welcome to Briar Forest Super Neighborhood!

We want your ideas for the programming and design of Wilcrest  Park!

 

Westchase District, in partnership with the City of Houston, is developing a 3.6 acre park located just north of the Robinson Westchase Library (3223 Wilcrest), adjacent to the Library Loop Trail! The first step in our design process is to gather input from the community to determine what features it should include. We want you to be an active participant Wilcrest Park’s development, so we invite you to attend our first Community Input Meeting on Wednesday, March 29, 6:30 p.m. at the Tracy Gee Community Center, 3559 Westcenter Drive .

 

Your insight will help us understand what park amenities and programs are important to you. To ensure this is a truly successful park, we would like to gain as much feedback as possible. I ask that you please advertise this community meeting and encourage all of your friends, students, residents and/or employees to come out and participate.

 

Also available until March 26, is our Trails and Parks Master Plan Survey. This brief survey will help us determine where trails should be located to better connect residents, employees and visitors to various points of interest throughout the District, as well as help us determine the amenities and services needed within future park locations.
