Woodchase Park is becoming a reality! Recently, Westchase District General Manager Jim Murphy (above, left) inspected the site with Ali Choudhri, president of Jetall Companies. Choudhri sold the parcel to the City of Houston, which purchased the property on behalf of the District.
The 1.8-acre park site is located at the southern end of Woodchase Drive, just north of the Westpark Tollway. The park will connect to a hike and bike trail that runs between South Gessner Road and Briarpark Drive.
The Office of James Burnett will design the park. Other parks designed by OJB include Klyde Warren Park in Dallas, the Asia Society Texas Center in Houston and Houston’s Levy Park.
As part of the design process, OJB conducted a community input meeting to learn what amenities citizens would like to see included in Woodchase Park. You can still weigh in with your opinion by taking a brief online survey.
Some proposed features include a dog park, a children’s play area and public restrooms. Design of the park will be complete by this fall with construction expected to begin in 2019.
