City officials in Cowtown are set to consider a new project plan during a meeting this week that could have big implications for Fort Worth’s green space, according to a report by Fox 4 KDFW:

Fort Worth City Council will vote on Tuesday on whether to endorse a new master plan for Gateway Park, the largest park in the city.

“Micah Malone has been coming to the park since he was a kid.

“As an adult, he and his buddies frequent the park’s disc golf course.

“‘This is where I come pretty much every day in the summer, because it’s got the best shade around,’ Malone said.

“The nearly 800-acre park could soon undergo a multi-million dollar renovation.

“The city’s Parks and Recreation Department has come up with a master plan after soliciting feedback from residents and park users.

“‘It’s kind of like putting a new face on Gateway Park. So now we’re starting with the blank canvas. I think the site is now ready for the city to start investing in it significantly,’ said Scott Penn, Senior Capital Projects Officer with the Fort Worth Parks and Recreation Department.

“The estimated price for the master plan is $140 million.”
