Briargate Elementary gearing up for new Spark Community Park (5/12/2017)

FORT BEND ISD (May 12, 2017) – Briargate Elementary School students and staff are preparing for a new Spark Park that will soon be constructed on their school grounds to serve students as well as the surrounding community.

The Spark School Park Program works with schools and neighborhoods to develop community parks on public school grounds. In the past 30 years, Spark has built more than 200 community parks throughout the Houston/Harris County area. Each park is unique, with its design based on ideas and needs of the school and surrounding neighborhoods.

As part of the agreement with the Spark School Park Program, Briargate is required to raise $5,000 toward the construction cost of the community park. Briargate will hold a carnival at their campus on Friday, May 19 beginning at 5:30 p.m. Proceeds from the event will be used toward the park.
