The City of League City Dedicates Ghirardi WaterSmart Park on March 22nd
Posted In: League City News Posted by Pam Moore on 03/20/2014

The City of League City Announcement: “The City of League City invites residents to the ribbon cutting and dedication ceremony for the new Ghirardi WaterSmart Park located at 1810 Louisiana St. The ceremony is to be held on Saturday, March 22 at 10 am.

The Ghirardi WaterSmart Park is a collaborative effort of the City of League City, Texas SeaGrant, Texas A&M Agrilife Extension, Galveston Bay Estuary Program, and Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ).

The 3.75-acre space was funded through the City of League City’s Park Dedication Fund and a grant through TCEQ. The park features a pavilion, walking trails and a playground, but it’s more than just another park. It also has special conservation and educational features including rain gardens, an outdoor classroom, a cistern to collect rainwater for irrigation, a green roof on the pavilion and WaterSmart landscapes. “The TCEQ grant for Ghirardi WaterSmart Park gives the City and other area entities the opportunity to study, showcase and improve water management,” said Mayor Tim Paulissen. “Water is one of our most valuable resources and we are very excited about the opportunity to learn new and better ways to utilize and conserve that resource.”

The Ghirardi WaterSmart Park is home to the 100-year-old Ghirardi Compton Oak, which was moved to the site in 2012. The Ghirardi Family of League City donated the ¾ of an acre site where the tree is now located.”
