Update: September 22, 2017
The construction at Fritz Park has nearly been completed. The new football stands, baseball stands, concessions, and sidewalks are almost completed. Grass has been added to the fields and the rest of the landscaping should be done soon. Although it make look complete the grass will still need time to set in on the fields. We ask that the public not use the fields until our grand opening coming early spring of 2018.
Construction Begins: July 25, 2016
The Cottonwood Trail located in Fritz Park between Holmstrom Field and “Old” Hippo Stadium and Cottonwood Creek has been closed until further notice to reconstruct the existing football field and baseball field. The City of Hutto and its contractor, STR Constructors, demolished and removed the existing trail in an effort to prepare for the reconstruction and realignment of the new trail path as part of the current project. We ask that trail users find a different path to access Fritz Park or use the trails in other parks or sections of town for your exercise and enjoyment.
Please keep an eye on our Facebook page and City website for construction progress updates and notice of when the trail re-opens.
