League City seeks input on Bayridge Park improvements

0

League City officials are encouraging residents to take an online survey to determine what Bayridge Park improvements staff should prioritize, according to a city press release.

Bayridge Park has a fenced baseball field, a basketball court, a picnic pavilion and playgrounds. Originally considered improvements the city could fund with a $100,000 budget include repairing the pavilion’s roof, repairing and painting playground equipment and adding new fencing, according to the release.

However with a $300,000 Texas Parks & Wildlife Development grant the city will soon apply for, staff could replace play facilities with a new handicapped-accessible playground, replace the pavilion with a larger one with more picnic tables, add a walking trail with benches and fountains, landscape the area, and more, according to the release.

Those who take the survey can rank which projects should be prioritized to help staff determine the best future for the park. Options residents can rank include adding horseshoe and corn hole courts, replacing the baseball field with other facilities, and resurfacing the basketball court to allow for other activities, according to the release.

The League City City Council on Sept. 25 will use residents’ input when considering applying for the grant.
