"Just in time for the Deutschen Pfest weekend, the Pfluger Park playground will be open for play," Mayor Victor Gonzales said. "Thanks to partnerships with the PCDC and our Parks and Recreation Department, this innovative play design is becoming a reality and looks like quite an amazing place for children to play and families to make memories."

The $240,000 funding for this project comes from Parks and Recreation’s annual operations and maintenance budget, and a Pflugerville Community Development Corporation Grant.

The playground has been closed for construction since March for the construction of a new playground, a gazebo and site furnishings. The cornerstone of this project, the new playground provides a safe and accessible play space and includes elements honoring the history of the park. “The new playground enhances safety and is designed specifically for a larger demographic of children than our previous playground, including features for children ages 2-5 and 5-12,” Parks & Recreation Director James Hemenes said. “This new playground design innovates climbing elements and opportunities for active play.” 

The park will be open at Deutschen Pfest and then to the general public starting on May 20 following clean up of the Deutschen Pfestival.  For a full list of parks and playgrounds in Pflugerville, visit pflugervilletx.gov/trails for interactive and downloadable parks and trails maps.
