Committee Reviews Emancipation Park Agreement

Chair Cohen convened a meeting of the Council Committee on Quality of Life to review a presentation on a proposed inter-local agreement between the City of Houston and the Emancipation Park Conservancy. Founded in 1872, Emancipation Park is the oldest park in Houston and is located in the historic Third Ward community. Construction is underway in the park to restore the community center, construct a new recreation center and pool, implement a spray-ground and playground, and many other improvements. The new agreement will allow the Houston Parks and Recreation Department to share joint responsibilities with the Conservancy regarding maintenance and for the operation and programming of core services and supplemental enrichment activities in the park. All Committee meetings are archived online via HTV under the Committees & Commissions tab.
