In 2017, LKPMD developed a master trail and landscape plan for the Ivy & District’s regional detention ponds and the major drainage corridor. The Parks Master Plan and Beautification Strategy outlines recommendations for an attractive mixed-use district with open green space. Amenities include enhanced drainage channels with trails and landscape, parks, fountains and pedestrian bridge to trail systems.
In 2020 the first park in Lower Kirby, located at the amenity lake in the Ivy mixed-use development was completed. The public park and amenities include a trail, which will serve active and passive recreation needs of those who live, work, or visit Lower Kirby, and a pedestrian bridge across Clear Creek to connect to Shadow Creek Ranch.
