About

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 20-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 will create an upgraded open greenspace for large scale events such as Aggie Ring Day, as well as game-day tailgates. The redevelopment will bring the Aggie network and guests together for celebration, relaxation and inspiration. Aggie Park will feature 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 – will 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.

Movable outdoor furniture, Wi-Fi and new pathways connect the guests of Aggie Park, the various recreational spaces and support events of multiple sizes.

The lakes will create a much-needed breeze in the heat of Texas summers in addition to acting as a flood prevention system during high amounts of rainfall defying the sloped scenery.

The new design supports Texas A&M’s longstanding tradition of Aggie Ring Day, among other large-scale events.
