Adopted Master Plan

The Bend of the River Botanic Garden Master Plans were developed by the SWA Group of Houston, TX, Temple Parks & Recreation staff, and a community steering committee. These plans will define the vision, set priorities, and act as a guide for how the City will update and develop the Bend of the River property in the future. The Master Plan was completed in August of 2016.
