Flower Mound Community Activity Center

Project Type:
Community Recreation
Flower Mound, Texas

In 2001, the Flower Mound Town Council-appointed Blue Ribbon Committee began holding numerous public meetings to identify and develop strategies for responding to the community’s wishes for projects in a future bond election. An overwhelming majority of residents voiced their desire for Flower Mound to build more parks and recreational facilities.

As a result, the town held a bond election in February 2002, in which residents voted to approve $25 million in bonds to build three primary parks and recreation projects: Bakersfield Park, a soccer, softball and baseball complex for all ages; Chinn Chapel Soccer Complex, a soccer facility for all ages; and a community activity center. With a variety of amenities, ranging from aquatics and fitness areas to the teen room, the Flower Mound Community Activity Center has something for residents of all ages.

The facility consists of an indoor competition swimming pool with a slide and a diving board, an outdoor family aquatic center, a skate park, a gymnasium, a fitness area with a jogging track and meeting rooms that include a senior area and a teen area. The center also hosts year-round recreational programs suchs as crafts, performing arts and athletic activities.
