PAST PROJECTS​

​​Andrew Brown Park Redevelopment (2016-2017)

The ​Andrew Brown Park Redevelopment project is complete and both East and West are open to the public. The parks offer a wide range of recreational experiences, including active play and passive open space. Visit East and enjoy a quiet space to picnic or read a book. Or, take a jog around the decomposed granite soft running trail at West, play on the playground, or play a friendly game of basketball or sand volleyball! 

Through the citizen-driven Coppell Vision 2030 Plan, a need was identified for a signature park to activate the community and provide enjoyable public spaces. Citizen support was abundant, not only verbally but at the polls, and in 2013 approved the reauthorization of a ½-cent sales tax. 

The redeveloped parks feature community gathering areas with pavilions for performances and community uses, passive areas for sitting quietly enjoying the out-of-doors with friends and family, as well as an area appropriately sized for the large events that Coppell citizens have enjoyed for years. Also included is a rejuvenated youth athletic complex at Andrew Brown Park West, with a softball complex and new field sports complex, improved trails throughout, a playground, and basketball and volleyball courts.​​

A Message from Parks and Recreation Director Brad Reid
Several years ago, the idea came out of a series of strategic planning summits about renovating the Andrew Brown Parks, going on to suggest major changes to the usage of the park areas in the future, allowing for improvements to youth sports amenities and adding community gathering spaces.  These two goals became the baseline for a redesign of the parks in 2011, and have continued to be the focus since.  ​
