Ribbon Cutting Held for Tony Becerra Park Shade Structure
On Wednesday, January 5, 2022, the City of Rosenberg held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for a new shade pavilion at Tony Becerra Park located at 2000 Avenue A. The large pavilion is 55 feet long by 50 feet wide and features a concrete pad and twelve new picnic tables.

Construction of the pavilion was funded by the Rosenberg Development Corporation (RDC) at a cost of $60,000. During the ribbon-cutting ceremony, President Ted Garcia said, “The RDC likes to give back to the community; this is the kind of project we enjoy doing.” Former Mayor Lupe Uresti Cabello who was in attendance, and is the late Tony Becerra’s niece, thanked the City for making the park named in his honor such a wonderful place to visit and said her late Uncle would be proud.

The pavilion is open to the public or can be reserved for private use through the City’s website or in person at the Rosenberg Civic Center located at 3825 Hwy 36 South.

About the Park:
Tony Becerra Park is a 5-acre park that features several amenities including the new pavilion, a covered, full-size basketball court with six goals, multiple picnic tables and seating, a barbecue grill, restroom facility and playground equipment.

On Sept. 15, 2015, Rosenberg City Council voted in favor of renaming the Community Park in honor of local World War II veteran, Anthony “Tony” Becerra. Becerra was a lifetime resident, community leader, local businessman, and former City Councilor. Mr. Becerra passed away on March 31, 2018.

Mr. Becerra was raised in Rosenberg and attended Rosenberg High School. After being drafted by the United States Army in World War II, he was assigned to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, 28th Infantry Division, and was captured by the Germans during the Battle of the Bulge. He spent five months as a prisoner of war before he and three others escaped.

Upon his return to the United States, he focused on his career in Rosenberg, working as an insurance agent, barber, bail bondsman, and dancehall owner. Striving to make a difference in the community, he served as a precinct judge and consistently supported efforts to register voters. He served on Rosenberg City Council from 1992 to 2005 and remained a dedicated servant to the public.
