The park, officially opened in May 2008, is a beautiful addition to our community and was designed as a multi-use facility that compliments and expands upon the original Terranova West clubhouse, pool, tennis court, and park common grounds, the purpose being to enhance our quality of life and property values for years to come!

December, 2012 Update

Park ground improvements were recently completed to include 30 gallon trees planted at key locations as points of interest,  re-forestation of the southeast corner of the park designed to deaden vehicle noise from Cypresswood, and an expansion of the bed around the flag pole with shrubs to attract butterflys and bees to be planted in the spring.

A permanent fix for the walking path washouts has been proposed by our Lawn service contractor and is under consideration by the MUD Board.

The water fountains have been permanently removed due to escalating maintenance costs.

The Terranova West MUD Park was developed to be used by our local residents and the park is used for many sporting and leisure activities.  However, the park is not a“dog run”.  For clarification purposes, the Harris County Texas Animal Regulation Section 4 A states:

" All dogs and cats must be kept under restraint while in the unincorporated areas of Harris County, Texas. The custodian of a dog or cat is not authorized to have, harbor or keep any unlicensed dog or cat, or to allow any dog or cat to become a stray".

Therefore, residents are welcome to walk your pet in the Terranova West MUD Park. However, all dogs must be on a leash at all times.

There are two "Doggie Pot" stations in the park. For the health and safety of our residents, please clean up after your pet. Signs are posted in the park reminding residents dogs must be on a leash and to clean up after your pet.

Your neighbors appreciate your cooperation.  Help us keep the park a great place for all our residents to enjoy!

Regards,

Tom Lovell
