Elder Nancy Seay shares an exciting update to our Transform plans. A full-size gym located in the heart of our Kids & Student ministries. The 6000 sq. ft. gym will be ideally located for easy access for schools, kids & students and guests. The gym will incorporate incredible amounts of natural light and will double as a much needed meeting space for large groups of people.
Starting Sunday, November 4, we will have two parking assistant locations for mobility impaired, first-time guests, and solo parents! The first parking assistance stand will be located on University Boulevard in front of the Hunt Building. The second parking assistance stand will be located in the circle drive on the east side of campus near Wight Garden.
A new main entrance for our campus is appearing in the Bell Center, and two new entrances will be available along McFarlin Blvd. These entrances will be marked with flags.
The Hunt Building will be closed beginning November 1.
On Sunday, October 7, a new Welcome Area will be opened east of the Sanctuary. This is in preperation of the Hunt Building's closure after Sunday, October 28.
Construction is about to begin as part of our Transform initiative, and you’ll start to see major changes taking place in the near future on our campus. Here is some of what you can expect to see at Highland Park Pres this Fall:

DALLAS, Texas, August 7, 2018 – As a final step in the approval process, Highland Park Presbyterian Church (HP Pres) received unanimous approval yesterday from the City of University Park City Council for its Detailed Site Plan. A prior conceptual site plan received approved by the City Council on June 5, 2018. In addition to approval for the Detailed Site Plan, the City Council also gave approval for a public improvement agreement that will include the public benefit of replacing street and water infrastructure in Shannon Lane and the private construction benefit of the temporary closure of Shannon Lane and use of two adjacent residential structures. The agreement grants the HP Pres the temporary use of residential houses as offices and requires the church to fund the improvements to the City’s infrastructure adjacent to the site.
Preparations for construction on the HP Pres campus will begin this September. Shannon Lane will be closed soon for the duration of the Transform project, and McFarlin Boulevard will be closed on weekdays for the month of October for the installation of a 42-inch storm-sewer line.
