FY2018 funding for the Parks CIP program total $1,837,070; of which $75,750 is Parks Dedication Fees, $1,579,070 from 4B Corporation, and $182,250 in Grant funding. Projects planned in FY2018 include a pond at the Dog Park, funding for Tuscan Lakes Trails, TxDOT FM518 Bypass Hike & Bike Trail right-of way, Hike & Bike Trails Way-finding Signage, construction of Claremont Connector Hike & Bike Trail, design of additional trails as part of the 2012 Hike & Bike project, funding for Bay Colony Community Trail, design of Hometown Heroes Park 5K Loop, and design of the FM270 Public Boat Ramp Renovation.


Projects In Progress At A Glance:

Dog Park (PK1705):
The Dog Park is located on 3.5 acres of the former Countryside Wastewater Treatment Plant and opened November 2017. Funding in FY2018 is for a proposed future pond ($35,000).

Tuscan Lakes Trails:
The Tuscan Lakes Trails consist of 10' wide multi-use concrete paths along sections of FM 270, as well as League City Parkway. This trail project came to the 4B Board from the developers of Tuscan Lakes, Johnson Development Corporation. There are currently no sidewalks along this section of FM 270 and League City Parkway, and the developers would like to build 6' wide sidewalks in both areas based on the City Council approved 2003 Kenwood PUD document. This document preceded the Council approved 2010 Trails Master Plan. After meeting with Johnson Development Corporation they agreed to put in 10' wide trails along FM 270 and League City Parkway if the 4B Board agreed to pay for the cost of the additional 4' width of the pathways. During the May 2017 4B Board Meeting the group agreed to fund up to $25,000 towards the extension of the trails. This Hike & Bike Trail Project would utilize 4B Funds.

TxDOT FM518 Bypass Hike & Bike (PK1104):
A Hike & Bike Trail Project managed by TxDOT utilizing Federal Grant Funds in the amount of $3,681,510 (80%) with City matching funds of $1,491,820 (20% plus land cost), for an estimated total project cost of $5,173,330. The Hike & Bike Trail consists of a 10' wide multi-use concrete path that is 2.30 miles in length in the following segments: (1) South along FM 270 from the Genco Canal to the Five Corners intersection, (2) from the entrance of Clear Creek Intermediate on FM 2094 to the Genco Canal, East along canal to the edge of the CCISD property, then following the CCISD property line South to FM 518 at the Louisiana Avenue intersection, (3) from South Shore Boulevard following the North side of the Genco Canal, connecting to the other segment along the CCISD property line. The project includes the undercrossing at FM 2094 with retaining walls and safety railings. The City is responsible for joint approved overruns of the project. The City is also responsible for ongoing maintenance/operations, which costs are estimated below.

Hike & Bike Trails Way-finding Signage (PK1701):
This project would provide Hike & Bike Trail way-finding, safety, and interpretive signage along existing City Hike & Bike Trails. These signs would provide patrons with important information and directions along the trail system. Way-finding signs are meant to help individuals find their way along the trail routes, and they are proposed for trailheads, along the trails, and possibly along some major arterial intersections and roadways. Interpretive signage and safety signs are meant to communicate rules and provide educational interpretation to visitors, and are proposed to be located at trailheads and along the trails. This project will be able to move forward with the update of our Master Trails Plan.

Claremont Connector Hike & Bike Trail (PK1703):
The Claremont Connector Hike & Bike Trail consists of an 8' wide multi-use concrete path that is 1.5 miles in length. This trail project would connect the subdivisions of Claremont Park, Cedar Landing, and Clear Creek Meadows to the existing trails at Clear Creek Meadows (to the East) and Rustic Oaks (to the West). This trail segment would allow for a safe walking route to FM 518 by way of the Floyd Road Right-of-way. It would also provide a safe walking route to Bay Area Boulevard, as well as League City Parkway, via the Rustic Oaks-Magnolia Creek Connector. This would help provide access to Creekside Intermediate School and Clear Springs High School. This Hike & Bike Trail Project would utilize 4B Funds in the amount of $690,000.

2012 Hike & Bike (PK1202):
PROJECT DESCRIPTION: Proposed trails project in League City.

Phase 1 trails constructed 2016:
Rustic Oaks Trail, League City Parkway (Westover to Clear Creek), Calder Road, League City Parkway (Sportsplex Connector), Walker, Heritage Trail (Walker to FM518), and Rustic Oaks/Magnolia Creek Connector

Bay Colony Community Trail:
The Bay Colony Community Trail consists of a 6' wide multi-use concrete path that would run along sections of Cross Colony Drive in the Bay Colony Subdivision. This trail project came to the 4B Board from the Bay Colony HOA. There are currently no sidewalks along this section of Cross Colony Drive and the HOA group would like to build 4' wide sidewalks in this area. After looking through the Trails Master Plan it was noted that Cross Colony Drive calls for a 6' wide trail in this area. At that time the HOA agreed to put in a 6' wide trail along Cross Colony Drive if the 4B Board agreed to pay for the cost of the additional 2' width of the pathway. At the 4B Board Meeting on November 2016 the group agreed to fund $75,000 towards the extension of the sidewalk. The City and Bay Colony HOA will still need to complete an agreement before any design or construction can begin on the project. This Hike & Bike Trail Project would utilize 4B Funds in the amount of $75,000.

Hometown Heroes Park 5K Loop:
The City has a partnership, through a Texas Parks & Wildlife Department Recreation Trail Grant opportunity, to construct a 5K Hike & Bike Trail on the grounds of Hometown Heroes Park. The 10' wide decomposed granite trail will run in its entirety, off road, and within the confines of Hometown Heroes Park. The total estimated cost of the project is $1,493,300. This opportunity will use $1,293,300 of City funds, and a $200,000 grant from the Texas Parks & Wildlife Department. The City's contribution will come from 4B funds. The 4B Board approved funding support at the January 2015 meeting, with the understanding that approval of this project may delay a portion of the 2012 Hike & Bike Phase 1 Project (PK1202). The 4B Board felt this was an excellent opportunity to leverage its funds and reprioritize its projects since grant funds are available. This project is not in the current Trails Master Plan. The 5K Loop trail will be maintained by the City. Annual maintenance costs are estimated to be $108,000.

FM270 Public Boat Ramp Renovation:
This is a project that would renovate the existing FM 270 Public Boat Ramp. The current Boat Ramp is over 25 years old and has been in need of major repair for the last couple of years. The Boat Ramp needs to be renovated for safety reasons, and also to bring it up to date for the various types of water craft that now would like to use it. The old Boat Ramp was constructed for use by larger boats. A new renovation would allow for launching vessels of all makes and sizes. The repairs would also help remove silt from the launch area and also reinforce the bulkhead which is in need of major repair. Total cost of the project is currently estimated at $663,000. This includes all design work as well as construction costs. There is potential grant funding through the Texas Parks & Wildlife Department. The Boat Access Grant would provide funding of 75% from the State of Texas, and the remaining 25% would come from City Park Dedication Fees.

Parks Facilities Renewal Project:
Replacement and/or upgrade to Park Facilities for Energy Efficiency and Beautification as part of the Reinvestment Program:
FY18: Re-Plaster of Municipal Pool on the Walker Complex to include removal/haul away of all layers of old plaster, replacement of both lane and water lines. $80k Burd House/ Park Administration Office Exterior Renovation at League Park to include removal and disposal of lead based paint materials in mandated fashion, replace any rotten wood, re-glazing of old window panes, prepare surfaces and repaint with exterior grade primer/ paint to color match existing. $130k Rehabilitation of Fly Ash Aggregate Trail at Nature Center to include repurposing /regrading of old materials on site to be used as a sub base with installation of new 6’ wide trail material consisting of permeable decomposed granite with stabilizing bonding agent and 6” drainage pipes installed where needed for rain water sheet flow beneath the trail.

Downtown Revitalization Trails:
To design and construct trails as a companion project to the Downtown Revitalization project as part of the Downtown/Economic Development program.
