|The permit for the basketball shade structure was approved faster than expected and installation is planned for the week of April 17. Hurray! Note: A tree will be removed at one corner of the court to make room for the structure, and we will plant replacements in the fall. |
Save the date for a ribbon cutting ceremony and celebration with the Neighborhood Partnering Program and Public Works Department to mark the completion of this grant funded project on June 10th!
Cement is being poured for the new tennis courts in the
Pharr Tennis Center renovation, and the updated estimate is that the project will be finished this summer. We had so much fun at It’s My Park Day and the Amplify Ice Cream Party! Thanks again to all the volunteers and supporters for all you do!
