City of Aledo and Aledo Community Center Project
Written by Gay Larson – Master Gardener
Azle Central Park is located at 263 West Main Street. Next to the Azle Public Library.
The Parker County Master Gardener Association has landscaped several areas in Azle’s Central Park located on 28-acres on Main Street in Azle.The group designed the landscaping at the park’s entrance, next door to the Masonic Lodge as well as around the gazebo.
The ribbon was cut and Central Park officially opened on Monday, July 14, 2008. This was truly a community effort; with help from volunteers, local businesses, donations from Azle citizens, Parker County Master Gardeners and city staff all working together to make this dream a reality. The Texas Parks & Wildlife provided the grant that helped build this park.
The garden, by the door to the city hall building has Fall Asters in the design of an “A” for Aledo, plus, 500 variegated vinca major plants under the live oak trees.
Across the street, the Aledo Community Center and Park incorporates a walking trail that meanders through its playground and gardens.
The park has a gazebo for picnics and benches for resting. Perennials, trees, annuals, and shrubs, planted in six defined flowerbeds. They create interest with the variety of displays on berms, arbors, and trellises, with a surround of decorative boulders. Perennials, trees, annuals, and shrubs, planted in six defined flowerbeds.
