HOUSTON (CW39) –  Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner, 50/50 Park Partners and Valero Energy Foundation are revealing the new improvements at Hartman Park in east Houston, with a ribbon cutting. 

It’s the first park to receive improvements and long-term support as part of the Mayor’s initiative to create equity in complete communities and neighborhood parks across the city of Houston.  Today they will be in the Magnolia Park – Manchester Complete Community to celebrate the end of construction on a new playground.  

Updates to the Hartman park includes the following:

  • Colorful playground units for children ages 2-5 and 5-12
  • Multiple swings and spinners
  • New concrete border
  • Ramp and walks
  • New playground surfacing
  • Subsurface drainage
  • New benches

Theses improvement were made possible by the City Bonds Funds and Valero Energy Foundation.  Valero Energy Foundation is a founding member of the 50/50 Park Partners initiative and has committed over $600,000 in grants and in-kind services. Now the 50/50 Park Partners initiative brings together 50 businesses to help improve 50 neighborhood parks through monetary contributions, in-kind support, ideas, and volunteers.
