Germany Park, located at 6401 Lomo Alto Drive, was previously known as “Park A”. In 1974, the City annexed the parkland from Greenway Parks in Dallas. The park was dedicated and renamed in 1979, in honor of Mayor E. Wilson Germany, who faithfully served the people of University Park from 1970 to 1976.
The park’s rubberized track, named in honor of former Mayor John Roach, features facilities that are ideal for athletic conditioning. An outdoor fitness area, that also has a rubberized surface for user accessibility and safety, is located just north of the track. During the school year, the Highland Park varsity soccer team and track team work out at the park. Spring brings school-sponsored field and tracks meets and YMCA-sponsored field days. On the northeast corner of the park, at University and Loma Alto, is a double tennis court complete with fiberglass practice backboards and lighting for evening play.
- Lighted Tennis Courts
- Track Facilities
- Portable Restroom
This park is great if you like to run; it has plexitrac for the running surface. The park is clean and well-maintained, but the lighting at night is minimal, yet it is Highland Park, so it is safe – for the most part. There’s usually an officer that parks at one end of the park when it’s dark.
There are some limited times of closure due to HPISD needing this for their track meets and other events, and the restricted times are posted on a sign at the park.
Other groups meet there to play soccer and other sports, but these meets do not close to the public. The port-o-potties here are the luxury of all kinds – spacious, roomy, and clean. People who share this park with others are friendly and cordial.
Germany Park is a public park in the City of University Park, yes, it is in the “Bubble”. The park has an outdoor track facility, two lighted tennis courts, a playground, and a soccer field. You absolutely will find it full of kids from toddlers to the Highland Park varsity soccer team and track team that work out at the park. Just south of the track is a space designed for use by younger children.
It features a fairly new playground with a rubberized surface, tables, benches, and lighted walkways. During mornings you are likely to find Park City Moms and even maids walking the track along with some pretty dedicated athletes mixed in with some old Park Cities guys trying to ward off or at least trim some champagne belly.
This is a nice community park with tracks you can run and walk. There is a field you can practice the long jump. There are tennis courts nearby.
