gertie barrett park

Gertie Barrett Park will be a new neighborhood park to serve residents in the northwest quadrant of Mansfield, an area identified in our 2020 master plan as moderate to highest need of park space and amenities. The property, located off Gertie Barrett Road near Business 287/Main Street and Garretson Lane, was purchased years ago to serve as future parkland and was the highest priority project in this quadrant. In May 2021, Mansfield City Council allocated funding to develop this park and bring residents much-needed space and amenities.

Sept. Update

Park planners and staff met with residents in an open public meeting on Wednesday, Sept. 8, to gather feedback on proposed amenities and layout. The presentation shown at that meeting can be viewed on the documents tab on this page. Based on the input received at that meeting, as well as direct conversations with citizens via phone, email and in-person meetings, designers will make adjustments to the final plans before proceeding to construction. Final layout will be released when available.
