Help us "Make a Splash" at Texas Drive Park!
We are raising funds for the construction of a splash pad at Texas Drive Park. The project would feature a 2,000 SqFt pad with 15-20 spray features and would be free for residents and visitors. We would greatly appreciate your support to make this park amenity a reality!
Learn more on the splash pad page.
