Leading Businesses, Foundations Boost Greenspace Campaign

Wilcrest Park, 2951 Wilcrest, will be a gathering place for the community.

Westchase District's Greenspace for Westchase campaign to fund the planned Wilcrest Park is off to a strong start thanks to major donations from companies, organizations and foundations familiar to all Houstonians.

The Greenspace campaign was created to cover the $3.2 million gap in funds necessary to build Wilcrest Park into a regional destination. Wilcrest Park will be built on a 3.5-acre parcel of land located on Wilcrest Drive immediately north of Robinson-Westchase Library and Westchase District's Library Loop Trail. The park is in final design and the District's board is expected to award a construction contract for the park later this year. Read More
