Richard Simpson Park Phase II Development

Arlington Parks and Recreation is excited to receive your feedback on Phase II development plans for Richard Simpson Park at this come-and-go open house! The meeting is set for 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesday, June 1 in the Gary D. Harl Community Room at the Arlington Police Department West District Service Center, 2060 W. Green Oaks Blvd.

Project Background

Richard Simpson Park is a 9-acre City park on the shoreline of Lake Arlington. It is one of only two Arlington parks that provide public access to Lake Arlington for recreational usage. The 2008 bond election included replacement of the lake house facility. The Phase I development, that included design and construction of the new Kathryn Wilemon Lake House Event Center, was completed in 2019. The 2018 Bond Program includes improvements for Phase II development.

The Phase II development will provide site amenities such as playground areas with swings, group pavilion, event gardens with gazebo, pedestrian pathway connections, picnic stations, (floating) boat house, lakeview overlook area, fishing pier, parking lot improvements, and landscaping.

If you are unable to attend the open house but still want to provide input, please contact Parks Project Manager Mitali Mandlekar at 817-459-5478, [email protected], or write a letter to Mitali at:
