Two neighborhood parks in the City of Pearland received upgrades recently.
In Woodcreek Park, the enhancements include new playground equipment, a shaded sitting area, picnic table addition, monument sign and landscaping, and a walking trail.
The park enhancements began in March of 2019. The latest work accomplished was for landscaping enhancements along the fence line between the park and adjacent storage facility.
The final landscaping was installed in December. According to city officials, a late fall planting time was selected to provide time for the plant roots to develop in the cool soil before the stress of a hot dry summer.
Woodcreek Park is located at 2907 Crane in Woodcreek neighborhood in Pearland.
Corrigan Park has also received enhancements.
In Corrigan, the new play structure was erected to replace equipment that was more than 20 years old.
The new equipment provides safe play and has dynamic and upgraded features.
The new ADA accessible playground features a multiple user swing for companion style swinging experiences as well as multiple entry and exit areas for children ages 5-12.
Corrigan Park’s playground now offers an up-to-date, safe, inviting, and accessible experience for Pearland residents.
Corrigan Park is located at 5409 Cunningham in the North Corrigan neighborhood.
