BRYAN, Texas A super park may very well be coming to town, but now the question is where to put it.
Bryan City Council got a peek at some proposed options for the park Tuesday afternoon. If the city decides to build a park, there are several to choose from.
One would come with more sports fields, a five-hole golf course, hiking trails, a universal playground, even spaces for restaurants.
On Tuesday, council decided to let a consultant seek out the best possible location for the park.
As of now, the Bryan Municipal Golf Course is still a possible location.
Hugh Seale with the Bryan Golfer's Association said he's not against a super park, but thinks Lake Bryan would be a better location.
"We have over 800 wooded acres that needs to be developed in that western sector of that county," said Seale. "We don't need it on our golf course."
President of Bryan United Little League, Michael Parks, said there are about 900 kids in Bryan who depend on city baseball fields. He said the parents are thankful for the four parks in Bryan they're using now, but they've grown old over time, and are in need of serious repairs.
"So now that we have an opportunity to have a discussion about the needs for these facilities, we want to engage in that conversation," said Parks.
No word yet on how long it will take the consulting firm to narrow down a location for the park. After that, city council will ask for input from the public on which park option to choose.
