Evelyn’s Park groundbreaking


Evelyn’s Park has officially kicked off construction on a project that will add several new enhancements.

The group managing the park, Evelyn’s Park Conservancy, hosted a groundbreaking ceremony Dec. 13 to commemorate the start of the project, which will include a solar-powered shade structure for small gatherings, a large covered pavilion with moveable seating, an interactive splash pad and two new interactive playgrounds. These facility priorities are based on park user feedback and surveys conducted in Bellaire.

“The Park’s well-planned expansion will provide for more satisfying year-round activity and allow our visitors to engage with nature and outdoor play for years to come,” board President Jerry Wische said in a Nov. 16 announcement of the project.

Construction on the project—Phase 2 of the conservancy’s plan for the park’s development—will take place over the next six months. B&D Contractors has been tapped to implement the plans created by SWA, an international landscape architecture firm that designed Phase 1.
