Round Rocker: Parks and Recreation 411

New wildflower areas in Round Rock parks

The City of Round Rock Parks and Recreation has started a new mowing schedule that is going to allow for more natural areas in our city parks. We're going to put out Texas wildflower seeds and make some beautiful scenic areas inside our parks. It'll take a month or so before the selected areas become more visible but be on the lookout! 

We identified 136 acres to be left natural with a majority inside Old Settlers Park. Other nature areas are in Round Rock West Park, Bowman Park, Clay Madsen Park, Lake Creek Park, Meadow Lake Park and Rabb Park. In consideration to neighborhoods and homes, the nature areas are centralized within the parks to allow manicured areas by pedestrian right-of-ways and roads. We hope citizens enjoy the pretty new wildflower areas. Its a win-win, we're saving money by not mowing the acreage and allowing for nature areas all at the same time!

I appreciate the city's efforts to introduce more wildflower areas; they really enhance Round Rock and Central Texas in so many ways. Now I'm looking forward to next spring (and hoping the rainfall cooperates.)
