The City is excited to announce that Seabourne Creek Nature Park has been named as one of the top ten finalists for a $75,000 grant from Niagara Bottling Company’s “Perk Your Park” Contest.
In March of this year, the City applied for a grant through the NRPA and was selected as one of ten national semifinalists. If the city were to win this grant, the park enhancement will provide families and school children of Fort Bend County with an educational and fun outdoor environment where they can experience and learn to love nature in a shaded picnic setting.
Niagara will choose three winners of $75,000 this year, based on the results of a public voting period starting on August 1. Anyone can vote for Seabourne once per day at https://uqr.to/SeabourneCreek until the polls close on September 12th, 2022.
If Seabourne wins, the improvements made with the $75,000 grant will include an Arboretum that will transform approximately 6 acres of empty space into a family-friendly educational space with native trees, new paths made of crushed granite, and picnic tables will be nestled along the paths and under the tree canopy. Construction of these new amenities at the park will be handled through an agreement with the City and Coastal Prairie Chapter’s partners.
The Perk Your Park Contest from Niagara Bottling Company, is held each year through its charitable program, Niagara Cares, and in partnership with National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA). The Perk Your Park Contest is part of the Niagara Perk Your Park Project, an initiative that focuses on park and community space revitalization across the country.
Thank you for voting daily for Seabourne starting August 1 through Sept 12!
