MacGregor Park

MacGregor Park

Overview

A master plan for MacGregor Park was completed in 2016 under the direction of Houston Parks and Recreation Department with the involvement of the Friends of MacGregor Park, Greater Southeast Management District, and OST/Almeda Corridors Redevelopment Authority.

On behalf of the Houston Parks and Recreation Department, from May - October 2021, Houston Parks Board is leading a review of the 2016 plan with lead consultant M2L Associates, guided by the City of Houston, Friends of MacGregor Park, and MacGregor Park Conservancy with input from stakeholders, public agencies, and community organizations. The project team also includes Gooden Engineers and RDC Architects.

This process includes consideration of recent projects and planned improvements in and around the park, with the long-term goal of making recommended improvements to MacGregor Park.

Community input is a key component of this process. A series of community meetings, work sessions, and events were held to share what is working, and what can be improved upon, at MacGregor Park.

Input gathered was used to develop an updated master plan, which will be shared with stakeholders and the community. A feasibility study for funding the project and a plan and commitment for long-term maintenance for the improvements will need to be completed before any improvements can be made.

WORK SESSIONS
