Vote for East End Houston's Ingrando Park to Win $20,000 Grant

Three Houston Parks and Recreation Department projects are competing for a $20,000 grant through the Parks Build Community initiative, including East End Houston’s own Ingrando Park!

Cast Your Vote for Ingrando Park

The National Recreation and Park Association, Disney Citizenship, ABC Television and ESPN are collaborating to revitalize parks across the U.S., including a park project right here in Houston through Parks Build Community!

If chosen, the Futsal Court at Ingrando Park will repurpose an unused tennis court into a new mini-pitch soccer court for players of all ages. The mini-pitch court will benefit the Soccer for Success program, an initiative of the U.S. Soccer Foundation in partnership with the Houston Parks and Recreation Department. The initiative engages low-income, at-risk children at city parks and schools in youth development opportunities through the game of soccer.

You can vote for Ingrando Park once a day throughout April! Help ensure that our own Ingrando Park wins the $20,000! Vote daily at: www.NRPA.org/BeInspired.
