After more than two years of construction, the renovation of 20 acres in the heart of the Texas A&M University campus is ready to welcome visitors. The transformative Aggie Park project officially opens Friday with a concert by Texas music legend Robert Earl Keen Jr. ’78.

Take a look at some of the defining features of the new park located across from Kyle Field between Houston and Throckmorton streets.
