Park and Trail Projects

Current Park and Trail Improvement Projects
Several areas in Victoria will be under construction this year for improvements to parks and trails.

Outdoor Pickleball Courts    COMPLETE 

Diethelm Park Behind the Victoria Recreation Center
Construction of the 8 outdoor pickleball courts behind the Victoria Recreation Center are now ready for play.

Victoria Skate Park    COMPLETE 
West Side of Lions Park (8339 Victoria Drive)
The skate park equipment that was once located behind the Victoria Recreation Center has moved to its new home in Lions Park.

Bavaria Road East Trail    IN PROGRESS 
Along Bavaria Road from Ali Lane to CR 18
A much-anticipated new trail will be constructed during the summer along the east side of Bavaria Road from Ali Lane to County Road 18, connecting and extending a major trail route within the city. The trail route has been graded and blocked off with cones as of June 2023.

Lakeside Estates Park Phase II    IN PROGRESS 
Lakeside Estates Park (2623 Woods Drive)

The current Lakeside Estates Park south of Wassermann Lake has a playground, basketball court, and open-air shelter for the community to recreate and enjoy. As part of Phase II of the park, the open area adjacent to the existing park will undergo significant site grading, installation of a small 13-space parking lot, construction of trails and a ball field with benches. Construction starts May 8, 2023 with an anticipated completion during the summer of 2023,  weather permitting. Construction will not impede the use of the existing park amenities, and proper safety measures will be taken to ensure there is a barrier between the park and construction.

Deer Run Park 1 Playground    ON HOLD 
Deer Run Park 1 (8720 Ridge Ponds Drive)

Victoria Recreation Center Roof Replacement    IN PROGRESS 

The Victoria Recreation Center (VRC) is pleased to announce the Roof Replacement project, which serves as a crucial step in preventing facility damage, addressing existing leaks, and ensuring the facility’s long-term sustainability. This project is in partnership with Independent School District 112 (ISD 112), who will manage and coordinate the project. While some impact on VRC programs is expected, City staff will maintain regular communication with the public to keep everyone informed. Construction began in earnest the week of July 24, 2023.
