Germany Park - Track replacement project

September 20, 2017

Germany Park Sign

Work has begun on upgrades to the track at Germany Park.  During this time period both the track surface and the infield area will be closed to the public.  The park's tennis courts and the playground to the south of the park (Davis Park) will remain open throughout the improvements. 

In 2006, the City of University Park, Town of Highland Park and HPISD engaged in a joint venture to replace the John Roach Track at Germany Park. That track surfacing had a five-year manufacturer warranty. Now, 11 years later, the track is in an advanced state of deterioration and needs to be replaced.

Project particulars

The City and HPISD are working together to replace the track for use by the school district and our residents. The project will include the removal of the existing track, replacement of asphalt base (where needed) and the installation of the new rubberized track surfacing. In addition to the track project, an outdoor fitness area will be installed. This fitness area will have several equipment components to support individual workouts and exercise programs. For user accessibility and safety, the fitness area will also have rubberized surfacing.

Weather permitting, all upgrades will be completed in early December 2017.
