Friends of Linkwood Park is excited to announce construction plans underway at Linkwood Park! In a meeting Tuesday evening of Houston Parks Board, Houston Parks and Recreation, and the Friends of Linkwood Park board, it was announced $500,000 in greenspace funds have been earmarked to the Linkwood Park renovation project. Representatives of both Houston Parks Board and HPARD stated it was the support of the community, shown through donations to the project and park activity, as well as the support of Council Member Green through District K’s $37,000 in Council Service Request awards, that convinced leaders to allocate the greenspace funds to Linkwood Park.
Lauren Griffith Associates, Landscape Architecture and Planning, is contracted to lead the design plan and implementation. During Tuesday’s meeting, Ms. Griffith led a presentation and discussion on design plans, utilizing the original renovation plans developed by Friends of Linkwood Park and Houston Parks Board. The estimated timeline for the project is one year for survey/design and one year for construction. Friends of Linkwood Park would like to thank the neighbors of this amazing Braeswood community and Council Member Green and the District K staff for the ongoing support of Linkwood Park that has made these next steps possible.
