Concept Sketch, Jennie E Hughes Park, West University Place, TX

Thanks to a $2.2MM gift from the family of Jennie E. Hughes, the southeast quadrant of West University Place is finally getting some public greenspace!  With regard to parks, this section of our community is the most under-served part of the city.  It is the only quadrant of our neighborhood where children must cross a busy, four-lane street to reach a green space.  Plans for a park have been in the works for at least twenty years – and now it is happening at last!

The City is currently soliciting citizen input for the design of our newest park space.  Go to to review three possible concept sketches.  All three designs include passive features appropriate to a “quiet use” park.  Pick your favorite, and email your comments to before April 16, 2017.  This is your chance to be a Grass Roots Advocate!
