The other 3 phases of the Boys Ranch Master Plan address the remaining portions of the park. These phases focus on improvements to the various sports fields, the Boys Ranch Activity Center, as well as parking / accessibility concerns. In addition, the City of Bedford was awarded a $100,000 grant from the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department to assist with the project.
