Jaycee Park Update

If you did not make it to the festival on Saturday or had to leave early, these are the 2 big announcements you missed…

Sprayground Coming Soon to Jaycee Park!

The Big Announcement
It has been almost 1 year since we had the big public hearing with the city and Houston Parks Board.  One of the possibilities many people got very excited about and said they would really love to have is a water sprayground at the park so that they could enjoy the park even in the summer.  HEB had one last sprayground to donate and guess which park they just chose????? Jaycee Park!!!!!!!!!!!  It will be ready  for Spring 2011.    This was a $250,000 donation to our park!

The second big announcement is that we just received a $25,000 donation from the Mendenhall Foundation to renovate the basketball court! This will be over two years (June 2010, June 2011), so the construction would begin after receipt of the second payment.

The Friends of Jaycee Park t-shirts were really popular at the festival and we sold out of our supply, but are about to place an order.  If you are interested in getting one, they are a $12 donation and just let us know the size you would like.  We can order children’s sizes too.  The deadline will be this Friday to get in your order.
