Members of the Flower Mound (Texas) Town Council saw the design plans for Twin Coves Park on Monday (Aug. 18) and thought they looked nice.

They just want to be careful that it’s not “too nice” and thus too expensive, TheLeader of Plano reported.

The council unanimously approved the conceptual master plan for the 243-acre park, but not without some discussion on how much the town was getting for the money.

The park is located on a peninsula west of Murrell Park off Grapevine Lake. The town entered into a 25-year lease with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in 2010 to take over the park, and town leaders have envisioned turning it into a park that’s unique from all others in Flower Mound.

So far, the primitive camping sites have opened.

Mark Spencer, president of MHS Planning and Design LLC, told the council that the bulk of the project would cost $3.1 million. That includes 18 RV sites, 20 cabins, roads, utilities, a lawn area for the RV site and other small amenities.

He said it would cost $5.7 million for the entire project, which includes a headquarters at $1 million, eight more RV sites and the lakeside day use area. The day use area would feature a fishing pier, a launch center for small watercraft, playground, pavilion, restroom, seven cabanas and a sand volleyball court.
