The City of Houston has appropriated $644,000 for park improvements and upgrades to Wild Heather Park for the upcoming 2015 fiscal year. The Parks and Recreation Department facilitated a project scope meeting last month among the Hiram Clarke constituents to receive their input on what they wanted to see in Wild Heather Park. Following this initial meeting, the Parks Dept. will facilitate a subsequent meeting in April to trim-down the wish list to manageable park improvement request within the appropriation funding amount.
Wild Heather Park is one of the seven (7) neighborhood parks within the Hiram Clarke community. Acquired in 1978 as a City of Houston park, Wild Heather Park is 12.15 acres and is nestled within the Wild Heather subdivision. The Wild Heather Park project will be managed by the General Services Dept. for the Parks and Recreation Dept.
