Community members are invited to attend a public meeting Thursday evening at The Woodlands Township Recreation Center to discuss the Bear Branch Master Plan. The meeting will be the first public input session to garner resident and user needs for the future renovation.
Plan Background: At the August 18, 2016, meeting, The Woodlands Township Board of Directors approved the scope of services for a Request for Proposal (RFP) for a consultant to provide master planning services for Bear Branch Park. The request for an update to the master plan was to identify the best approach to study the impact of the proposed 50-meter pool to be located at the park and to consider the current state of the existing pool at the park.
About the Park: Bear Branch Park, developed in 1992, is a 19.57-acre town wide park located in the village of Cochran’s Crossing. The park is located directly across Research Forest Drive from Bear Branch sports fields. The park has undergone a number of renovations since construction and through 2008. The park now includes many townwide facilities, including, but not limited to, the largest skate park, nine tennis courts, a dog park, an in-line rink, a large pavilion, The Woodlands Township Recreation Center, Bear Branch Pool and a barrier-free playground.
