The formation of a long-range master plan for Brackenridge Park is nearly done, city staff told the City Council in a B session on Jan. 18. The document is meant to help integrate the park into its evolving surroundings and restore much of it to a more natural state. Preservation of historical features, and a reduction of traffic and improved parking are also goals in the plan.
