Katy, TX (October 12, 2016) Willow Fork Park is a passive-use park that will provide residents with another high-quality recreational environment. The project which is part of WFDD phase II of their master plan, improved flat land into a multipurpose environment with compelling topographical undulations, open lawns, trails, a lake, and other recreational features. Additional park components include boardwalks, a pedestrian bridge, and pavilion with restroom facility, playground, 18-hole disk golf course, solar-powered lighting, rock outcroppings, bio swales, and educational signage.

As visitors enter the grand opening celebration of Willow Fork Park they will be greeted by a symphony quartet and a meet and greet with the WFD board members and local dignitaries. Strolling around the park, attendees will be able to enjoy playground equipment, face painting, take part in a community art piece, enjoy acoustic guitar, and steel drums. Further on the trail, they can step back in time and watch a vintage baseball game. Sounds of a jazz band will guide spectators to another phase of the park. A DJ will close out the event with lively music and a few words from the WFDD Board of Directors. Picnic lunches will be available for purchase.

Willow Fork Drainage District was created by an Order of the Texas Water Commission, predecessor to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ), dated February 20, 1985. The District contains approximately 5,718 acres of land, of which approximately 5,247 are located within Fort Bend County, Texas, and approximately 471 acres are located within Harris County, Texas. The District has adopted a park plan and intends to finance components of its park plan with the proceeds from unlimited tax bonds authorized by the voters for such purpose.
