CITY HALL PLAZA PARK PROJECT UPDATEMelissa City Hall - Illustrative Plan  Section with labels

June, 27, 2016 - The new City Hall Plaza Park construction is underway with contractors completing the final punchlist items and it is slated to open Summer 2016. The newest addition to the City of Melissa’s parks and trails system will offer a vibrant gathering place for residents and visitors alike.  Click here for full artistic renderings.

The plaza will serve as the future home of the Melissa Farmers Market and will feature a gazebo, walking paths and a central water feature/spray fountain for children (and children at heart) to enjoy on a warm summer day.

Update on Spray Fountain/Water Feature (June 27, 2016)

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 unique here in Melissa.  

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.

To learn more about the Town Center concept check out the 2015 Update of the City's Comprehensive Plan.

Stay tuned for more information on the official opening of the all new Plaza Park.
