Gertie Barrett Park will be a new neighborhood park to serve residents in the northwest quadrant of Mansfield, an area identified in our 2020 master plan as moderate to highest need of park space and amenities. The property, located off Gertie Barrett Road near Business 287/Main Street and Garretson Lane, was purchased years ago to serve as future parkland and was the highest priority project in this quadrant. In May 2021, Mansfield City Council allocated funding to develop this park and bring residents much-needed space and amenities.
Based on feedback from community engagement during the master plan, the park design will include a playground, parking lot, splash pad, walking trail and open natural spaces.
Staff will present preliminary concepts to the public when available and gather additional feedback before finalizing the design and proceeding to construction. In the meantime, we welcome comments and feedback at anytime throughout the process via the form below.
Project documents and presentations will be added here when available; check back soon as the project continues!
