Rosebud THRIVE: Parks Project – Funds are used to support the 2017 Master Parks Plan for each of the five parks located in Rosebud, Texas.
The master plan for Rosebud's four parks is THRIVE | Promoting Parks and Creating Community.
The project consists of revitalizing the four parks in town: American Legion, Freedom, Centennial, and Unity. The estimated cost of the project at this time is $6.2 million. The new additions and renovations will help the City to retain people, attract new residents, and provide quality of life.
The Rosebud Park Board and the Community Foundation are working to see Rosebud THRIVE. We're passionate about building better parks but just as important, we are committed to creating community. While continuing to raise funds for Rosebud's parks, the purpose of our campaign is to revitalize outdoor spaces that are safe for children to play, parents to gather, families to unite and community to thrive.
The Master Plan is broken into four phases. With American Legion Park being the largest park, components of it will be done in each phase. Improvements to Centennial, Unity, and Freedom Parks will begin as funding becomes available.
Phase 1 - American Legion Park
Goal: $300,000 (Current Funds Raised: $190,000)
