The dedication ceremony for Wayne Ferguson Plaza, located across from Lewisville City Hall at 150 W. Church Street, will be held Tuesday, Oct. 13, at 6:30 p.m. The event will be followed by a free “Sounds of Lewisville” concert by Blaze of Glory: the Bon Jovi Experience at 7 p.m. on the plaza stage.

Wayne Ferguson Plaza is a 1.5-acre urban park and community gathering place built in the heart of Old Town Lewisville. It is adjacent to the historic Main Street commercial district and MCL Grand public arts center. The plaza was open to the public for the first time during the city’s recent Western Days festival.
Local dignitaries and members of the Ferguson family will be in attendance, along with members of the Lewisville High School Choir and NJROTC.

Food will be available for purchase before and during the concert from Eat Jo Dawgs and Ruthies Food Trucks. Those attending are welcome to bring their own food and beverages to the event, although the use of glass containers is strongly discouraged.
Smoking and vaping will be prohibited in the Lower Lawn directly in front of the plaza stage during the ceremony and concert, and in the splash pad and children’s play area at all times. Smoking will be allowed in the Upper Lawn and on the perimeter walkways.
Well-behaved pets on a leash are allowed.

Inspired by the sculptural manner in which water carves the landscape of the North Texas Tall Grass Prairie, the design of Wayne Ferguson Plaza takes on a contemporary sweeping gesture using water as a link east to west and unites the plaza with MCL Grand. A linear water feature runs parallel to a boardwalk, guiding residents and guests throughout a garden filled with swathes of native grasses and wildflowers. The water feature is designed as a cooling amenity and a gathering place surrounding the central stage and lawn terraces. A water fall serves as a dramatic backdrop for the plaza stage.

The final design was developed after a series of detailed workshops that included public charrettes where residents and the business community were able to offer their vision of the park space and how it would one day be used.
