The City of Frisco, Texas has released calls for artists for fun and interactive site-specific artwork for 3 new parks.
City of Frisco Plum Creek Park RFQ
Plum Creek Park is a 5.8-acre park located at the southeast corner of Plum Creek Drive and Stonebrook Parkway, and west of Teel Parkway. The park is adjacent to Bledsoe Elementary and Pearson Middle School, and is one quarter mile west of Reedy High School. The park is located directly adjacent to the residential developments of Phillips Creek Ranch and Lone Star Ranch.
The neighborhood park improvements will include a shade structure, children’s playground, multi-use court, walking trails, open practice fields, exercise stations, site furnishings, park signage and landscape improvements. In some cases, public art in the Parks and Hike & Bike Trails may be integrated into the facility’s basic elements. Entryways, pavilions, benches, pavement, and even play spaces can be designed by or enhanced by the hand of an artist, so long as the art does not affect the integrity of the element itself.
Art can help bring identity to these facilities, or help create a unified theme. It can be functional, interactive and participatory.
City of Frisco Ruff Range Dog Park RFQ
Ruff Range Dog Park is located at the southeast corner of Honey Grove Drive and Panther Creek Parkway in B.F. Phillips Community Park (off of 4th Army Drive, south of Stonebrook Parkway).
Due to the popularity of the dog park, and the everyday wear that the large dog area takes, an expansion is needed to help with the ongoing maintenance and longevity of the dog park. This expansion will allow for one large dog area to rest and reestablish turf while the other large dog area is active for use. The proposed park will include a large dog park area with water stations, a covered pavilion, lighting, parking additions, bench seating, and other various dog park amenities similar to the existing Ruff Range Dog Park.
City of Frisco Wranglers’ Range Neighborhood Park RFQ
Wranglers’ Range Neighborhood Park is located off Backstretch Boulevard and Cedar Ranch Road in the Phillips Creek Ranch subdivision of Frisco. This 8-acre park will be adjacent to a future Frisco ISD school. The neighborhood park improvements will entail aesthetic improvements, a shade structure, children’s playground, multi-use court, walking trails, and landscape improvements.
The budget for public art at Wranglers’ Range Neighborhood Park shall not exceed $23,900. This is inclusive and must encompass artist fees, fabrication costs, transportation, insurance, engineer’s services, site prep, installation and all other related expenses. The public art at Wranglers’ Range Neighborhood Park should do many things, including:
- Be engaging for children of all ages and families.
- Be lighthearted.
- Reflect the history of the surrounding area.
- Be welcoming to visitors of the facility.
