This space offers a vibrant gathering place for residents and visitors alike. The plaza will serve as the host of a number of community events and programs. The space features a large open pavilion (available for private gatherings), walking paths, and a central water feature/spray fountain for children to enjoy on a warm summer day or watch a colorful light show as you chase the streams of water at night. The water feature operates seasonally from Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day weekend.
This ornamental park is the next step in creating the Town Center, an area envisioned by City leaders to be reminiscent of a downtown square in an old Texas town, with City Hall in the center flanked by public plazas, and two-story office, retail and residential uses in surrounding blocks. This project reflects the City Council’s strategic goals of beautification and fostering connections through an open space for the community to gather and experience the small-town feel that is uniquely Melissa.
