Pease Park plan wins APA award
Thursday, October 15, 2015 by Elizabeth Pagano
It may have irritated a few disc golfers, but the Pease Park Master Plan has gone on to win a 2015 Project Plan Award from the Texas Chapter of the American Planning Association. The plan is a result of a partnership between the city’s Parks and Recreation Department and the Pease Park Conservancy, which raised more than $250,000 toward the planning effort. That plan calls for the restoration of historic structures, riparian restoration, improved habitats for wildlife and improvements to the tree canopy, among other things. The Pease Park Conservancy will celebrate the award at its annual fall fundraiser, which will take place at the Allan House on Thursday, Oct. 22.
