BEDFORD - A $3.2 million makeover of Boys Ranch Park is expected to change the look and feel of the city by reshaping the lake, building bridges and adding a disc golf course, among other improvements.

Construction will begin in January on the first phase of a master plan to transform the 68-acre park located at 2801 Forest Ridge Dr.

The park is an integral part of the Bedford Commons development, which will incorporate the library, Old Bedford School and the Boys Ranch, according to Mayor Jim Griffin.

Improvements in the first phase are funded by a $3.2 million bond package that voters approved in November 2013 and a $100,000 grant from the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department.

The improvements include dredging and reshaping the lake to make it more attractive to visitors; building a fishing pier; installing three steel bridges across a drainage channel to make it easier to get from one side of the park to another; and adding three pavilions, a disc golf course and a playground.

Other improvements include lighting, irrigation and water fountains. Later phases include improvements to the sports fields, the activity center and parking.
