WHAT’S HAPPENING AT FRANCKLOW PARK?


INVASIVES REMOVAL PROJECT

SATURDAY,  JUNE 24 -- 7 AM - TIL?
(Til it gets too HOT or we run out of steam!)


Come out Saturday morning to be a part of the project sponsored by Friends of Francklow Park (if weather allows)


Part of the plan for Francklow Park has been to encourage the growth of native tree and plant species in the park.  A number of non-native or domesticated plants such as Chinese Tallow (Triadica sebifera, native of eastern Asia), Japanese Ligustrum (Ligustrum japonicum, native of Japan, Korea) and Chinese Privet (Ligustrum sinese, native of China) among others are evident in the park.  These plants with their hardy, aggressive growth shade, out compete and displace the native species.  The objective of the project is to remove these invasives from the park over time.

Come out Saturday and be a part of the project.

(This is NOT a suitable project for young children.)

BRING:                Pruning saws, heavy duty loppers

WEAR:                  Gloves, long sleeves, sun protection

Questions? email Greg at mdaniell@sbcglobal.net


Join Wilcrest Park’s design team!

 

Westchase District, in partnership with the City of Houston is moving forward with design for 3.6 acre Wilcrest Park, located just north of the Robinson Westchase Library (3223 Wilcrest), next to the Library Loop Trail!

 

At our first meeting, we gathered input from the community to determine what amenities the park should include. Our second community meeting will give participants a chance to review and comment on potential park concepts, and share their thoughts on how the selected amenities should be placed on the site. We welcome the general public to join us at the park site located at 3100 Wilcrest Drive for our Second Community Input Meeting on Saturday, April 22, at 9 a.m.

 

If you missed the opportunity to share what amenities you’d like to see in Wilcrest Park at the first meeting, please take our online survey and give us your ideas!

 

I ask that you please advertise this community meeting and encourage anyone who may be interested to come out and participate.

 

Go to our Facebook page and share our posts that include the invitation and survey links.

 

 



We want your ideas for the programming and design of Wilcrest  Park!

 

Westchase District, in partnership with the City of Houston, is developing a 3.6 acre park located just north of the Robinson Westchase Library (3223 Wilcrest), adjacent to the Library Loop Trail! The first step in our design process is to gather input from the community to determine what features it should include. We want you to be an active participant Wilcrest Park’s development, so we invite you to attend our first Community Input Meeting on Wednesday, March 29, 6:30 p.m. at the Tracy Gee Community Center, 3559 Westcenter Drive .

 

Your insight will help us understand what park amenities and programs are important to you. To ensure this is a truly successful park, we would like to gain as much feedback as possible. I ask that you please advertise this community meeting and encourage all of your friends, students, residents and/or employees to come out and participate.

 

Also available until March 26, is our Trails and Parks Master Plan Survey. This brief survey will help us determine where trails should be located to better connect residents, employees and visitors to various points of interest throughout the District, as well as help us determine the amenities and services needed within future park locations.
