Hackberry Gully Regional Park

Mont Belvieu, Texas

Transforming fallow fields into a vital public amenity

Located within the Hackberry Gully watershed, the 200-acre Hackberry Gully Regional Park was conceived by the City of Mont Belvieu to supply stormwater detention for the watershed in a park-like environment. Design Workshop was selected to conduct a community engagement process that result in a city and community supported master plan. The outcome of the planning and design process clarified the project tone and solidified direction for park amenities harmonious with stormwater management, wetland mitigation and creation, passive recreation and native restoration. The philosophy of design is especially important given the park’s location within the city and region. Phase 1 of detention has already been completed, with Phase 2 of detention and Phase 1 of park amenity construction well under way.
