From pickleball courts and cricket fields to new trails and amenities, Precinct 4 is making a lot of progress in your parks. We recently funded six new SPARK park projects for students and community members to enjoy at schools in Houston and Alief ISDs.
Sinclair, Rodriguez, Memorial, Kennedy, Hearne, and Alexander elementary schools received a variety of improvements, including new paved trails, playground equipment, art installations, and an outdoor classroom.
The SPARK School Park Program works with schools and neighborhoods to develop community parks on public school grounds. Although each park is unique, a typical park consists of playground equipment, a walking trail, benches, picnic tables, trees, an outdoor classroom, and public art.
Precinct 4 features more than 40 SPARK parks. Find a SPARK park near you by visiting http://sparkpark.org/wordpress/schools/#locations.
