Matters of Public Record By Suzanne Ashe StaffWriter The New Braunfels Parks and Recreation Department is gaining ground with its land acquisitions earmarked for new parks. The Jan. 3 purchase of 58 acres of undeveloped land on County Line Road, immediately south of FM 725 known as Fischer Park, follows the 2001 purchase of land for die planned Torrey Park. Parks and Recreation director, Stacey Laird said a formal bid for construction of the Torrey Park project, located on the comer of Torrey and Gruene roads, was sent out for a formal bid within the last 10 days. In 2001, the city purchased the 5.25 acres for the park for $170,000 with funds allocated by the city's 4B board. Laird said the parks board conducted a meeting with residents who live in the Torrey Park area in 2006 to plan the park's development. "It's their park and about 30' residents came out to the-meeting," Laird said. "We want-' ed to see what types of things i they would like to see there, and what tilings they would-, n't like to see." Laird said Wade Tomlinson,, the city's park planner, designed, a walking trail and parking lot on the propertybasedonresidents' suggestions. The park will be completed in two phases, Laird said. "Phase 1 will be to build the walking trail and parking lot, she said. "And in Phase 2, a small building on the properly will be renovated for use as a meeting facility for family reunions and picnics."
