City Hall Plaza Park
Behind City Hall at 3411 Barker Avenue

The City Hall Plaza Park opened Summer 2016 and is t
he newest addition to the City of Melissa’s parks and trails system. 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 (and children at heart) to enjoy on a warm summer day or watch a colorful light show as you chase the streams of water at night.

Update on Spray Fountain/Water Feature (June 27, 2016)
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 unique here in Melissa.
