Park improvements continue

Stewart Park new playground

Improvements part of Parks Master Plan

The City of Killeen has begun making improvements to many of our parks as part of the Parks Master Plan, which is designed to improve, replace, and in many parks, build new amenities that invite park users of all types.


The recent updates include construction of the new Conder Skatepark. Construction began Jan. 9 and the framework is almost complete, and the final project is expected to be finished in early March. The park also has had new overlay and striping of parking lot. Plans for the park also include new drinking fountains, benches, fencing, field lights, new restrooms, new lights, a new multi-use field, new walking trail, resurfacing of the basketball courts and planting trees. 


A new playground was installed at Stewart Park in January, and a new multi-use field is in play. Future improvements include shaded seating areas, a splash pad, and a new walking trail. 


The basketball court at Phyllis Park underwent some resurfacing and is open for play. Future improvements at the park include a loop walking trail.  


Heritage Oaks Park disc golf course recently got some upgrades with concrete tee pads. These pads were the top requested improvement on our Frisbee Golf Survey, as they greatly improve playability on the course. 


More improvements are to come as part of the Parks Master Plan. The plan can be found at
