October 2021 - Updates from the Forever Parks Foundation
Hello Friends of the Forever Parks Foundation,

We hope that everyone has enjoyed the cool front that finally broke that streak of hot weather. It appears that fall has finally arrived in Brazoria County and we have been excited to see so many of you out enjoying our parks and trails in this cooler weather.

Pearland's first all inclusive playground - fundraising update!
As of today, we are now ninety five percent complete in reaching our fundraising target. We are so invigorated by all of the businesses, foundations and community associations that have come out to donate to this cause.
We are within reach of hitting our goal of $960,000. We are aiming to close this gap in the next few weeks so we can break ground on the playground in January 2022 without incurring any cost increases due to the demand on construction materials. We know that Pearland can help support this - for a $500 sponsorship (Friend Level) your business or family can be permanently recognized on the Wall of Recognition at the entrance to the playground. Donate today! Thank you to everyone who has already generously donated during the month of October. We appreciate you and your generosity will make a huge impact on our community! Donors since September 16 include:
  • Pearland Chinese Association, AYLUS (Partner Level)
  • Daryl Catching, Pearland Bicycles (Friend Level)
  • Buck Stevens Family (Friend Level)
  • Roy & Virginia Castillo (Friend Level)
  • MK and Travis Spiegelhauer (Friend Level)
  • Karri Axtell (Friend Level)
  • Janet Kelly
  • John Kelly
  • Meredith Wheeler
  • Melissa Zilembo
