Cross Timbers Park NOW OPEN

The new Cross Timbers Park is officially open! The city celebrated with a grand opening party April 20. We are excited to share this new space with our residents and neighbors.

Please note that while you are allowed to have birthday parties, etc., in the park, we do not do private rentals so you may have to share the space with other families.

Mayor's Message

As we head into May, we begin our third term as your mayor in Willow Park. We have had some accomplishments in the last four years and I am honored to be serving another term. We hope to continue the momentum we have established and complete more projects to secure the city’s long-term future. Thank you for your continued support.

May also makes me think of Mother’s Day and how I wish I had my mother here with me. Mothers play such an important role in the family and often go underappreciated for all the hard work, both physically and mentally, they put into taking care of the household and those who live in it. If you’re fortunate enough to still have your mother, I encourage you to go out of your way this year to show her how much she means to you. This also applies to stepmoms, grandmothers, bonus moms, and all the ladies who look after us every day.

As the end of May we will also observe Memorial Day and take a moment to remember those who sacrificed their lives in the service of our great nation. Willow Park has a park dedicated to Paul Balint, Jr., a veteran from Willow Park, and we honor all the men and women from our city who have served our country. Let’s all take a moment during your holiday gatherings to remember those who gave all.

My hope and prayer is we continue to move Willow Park forward and keep it a great place to live, play, worship and do business.

TWDB approves funding for wastewater plant

The Texas Water Development Board approved $14,130,000 in funding on April 22 towards the construction of the city's new wastewater plant. The plant will be located just a few hundred yards southeast of where the current plant sits. We estimate construction to begin sometime in 2022 and completion sometime in 2023.
