Meet Me at the Park! Vote for One of Three Houston Parks this Earth Month!

During April 2017, the National Recreation and Park Association, Disney | ABC Television Group and ESPN collaborated to revitalize parks across the U.S., including a Houston Parks and Recreation Department (H.P.A.R.D.) park! Through the Meet Me at the Park campaign, one of three H.P.A.R.D. parks will receive a $20,000 grant and Houstonians voted to choose which one will benefit.

The voting is over, and the results are being tallied. Visit for an update on the results!

The Houston Parks and Recreation Department projects are:

Nature Center Outdoor Classroom at Lake Houston Wilderness Park
This project will enhance the nature education programs at the park by installing a shaded, outdoor classroom to complement the Nature Center and enhance direct learning experiences for participants.

Mason Park Multi-Purpose Sports Field Improvement Project
The largest multi-purpose sports field at Mason Park will be enhanced to better serve local leagues. Over 2,000 players use this field every month for practice and games


Oak Forest Park Revitalization
This park is scheduled to receive a major makeover. Grant funds will be used to upgrade two tennis courts which offer free children’s tennis lessons and open play throughout the year.
