Aggie Park is part of the trend of rethinking access to large-scale sporting event arenas and stadiums, and creating designated spaces for the public to gather. This 22-acre site is an iconic meeting point at the heart of Texas A&M’s main campus for use during stadium events and throughout the year. The project creates an upgraded open greenspace for large scale events such as Aggie Ring Day, as well as game-day tailgates. The redevelopment brings the Aggie network and guests together for celebration, relaxation and inspiration. Aggie Park featurse new additions such as an outdoor amphitheater, event lawn, new events facility, and terraced lakes to enhance open space entertainment.
The lakes – which serve as detention ponds to store groundwater – create a much-needed breeze in the heat of Texas summers in addition to acting as a flood prevention system for the sloped landscape during high amounts of rainfall. A two-story 79,000 square foot alumni center, designed by Lake|Flato Architects, will complete the south side of the campus.
