River Walk at Central Park

Mixed-use Development

The River Walk at Central Park in Flower Mound, TX is a 159-acre mixed-use development including residential, medical, hotel, commercial, restaurant and public components surrounding a nearly mile-long man-made water feature as a focal point. This project involved over 20 public meetings / presentations in order to navigate through the Town’s complex approval process and to essentially create a new mixed-use zoning classification for the Town. Our team’s civil engineering and landscaping services include public infrastructure design of paving, drainage, water and sewer to serve the entire development, as well as the design of the streetscapes, public access ways and linear landscape adjacent to the river. In addition, our team was selected to provide the civil and landscape designs for several of the individual sites in the River Walk, including the Texas Oncology Building, River Walk Medical Plaza, Marriott Hotel, River Walk Apartments, River Walk Villas and Parkmount Townhomes.

Project Types

Additional civil engineering and landscape architecture services included the design of two intersecting Town trails with three points of connection; private sidewalks and trails; streetscapes; and public linear landscaped and amenitized pedestrian paths adjacent to the river. McAdams designed the Town’s Timber Trails Park at the northern terminus of the River Walk, adjacent to Timber Creek. The system of trails and sidewalks were designed to tie all various uses together for both pedestrians and cyclists. McAdams also spearheaded the design and implementation of a $350,000 public art project.

Although called The River Walk at Central Park, the project is actually a series of parks tied together by the central linear park along the river. Saturn Park on the south is a tranquil park next to a small lake, On the north is Timber Trails Park, an active park with an expansive tree cover next to a creek. Amenities include numerous pavilions; a play ground; a hike and bike trail with exercise stations; and a wetland restoration and sedimentation pond providing recycle water for all the common area.
