Andrew Brown Park Redevelopment (2016 to 2017)
The Andrew Brown Park system offers 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 1/2-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.
