Dawn to Dusk
Opening in early summer 2017, this 12+ acre park is connected both within Teravista and to the greater Georgetown area. It will be a great asset to Teravista and the Georgetown park system, and has wide appeal for fitness, recreation and observing nature at work.
The subject park improvements will create three major features, each of which contain elements of excitement and discovery. The Splash Pad features a giant spider and dragonfly mural that brings out the curiosity of its prey and predators. The Contemplative Trailhead is planted to attract butterflies and humming birds, while overlooking a pond. Explorer Park has a web playscape which contains unlimited play possibilities, along with a fossil dig to allow young paleontologists to learn about our ancient predecessors.
The Splash Park features a towering spider blasting webs of water over 2,000 square feet, making for a colossal battle against the Giant Spider. The additional 850 square feet is an area for the less adventurous, featuring a dragonfly mural and flowering water features. Low flow heads and recirculating water keep the water quality and fun up while keeping the volume down, thus minimizing water waste. The Splash Park is located at the highpoint of the park which gives it the perfect vantage point to see across the park to the Contemplative Trailhead.
The Contemplative Trailhead subtly offers orientation with paving features that display the cardinal directions, as well as an overlook to an existing pond. Plantings were thoughtfully selected to attract butterflies, dragonflies and hummingbirds.
The third area is Explorer Park. The main play component is the eye-catching Explorer Dome, featuring a 12-foot array of webs and challenges that create a new adventure on every visit, and draws out the curiosity of adults and children alike.
The landscape of the park is planned to minimize water use and blend in with the surrounding native vegetation. Large native areas will be established in disturbed areas by using temporary irrigation. Only the main features will be permanently irrigated with the exception of the connection between the Splash Park and the Contemplative Trailhead Garden.
All of these new park areas are linked with a trail system which contains a 1/3 mile fitness loop. The loop features three strength training stations on a convenient circuit. Veering from the loop rewards users with two great destinations. The Contemplative Trail head is a great place to relax after a hard workout, or you can relax in the shade at Explorer Park and watch your little one explore and discover.
