ABOUT ALABONSON PARK

Funding has been made available through a $2 million appropriation in Harris County Precinct 4 Park Bond funds, a $1-million grant from Texas Park & Wildlife, and the land donation from the City of Houston. Groundbreaking and major construction began  August 5, 2019.

Development of this 50.21-acre multi-use park is being facilitated by a Local Parks Grant from TPWD, and includes a lighted soccer, softball and football fields, parking lots, maintenance facilities, picnic areas, playgrounds, paved multi-use trails and natural surface trails.

Approximately 50.21-acres has been transformed into a family-centric venue where anyone can come enjoy soccer, football or softball games as a spectator or participant.  There are hike-and-bike trails, concessions, a butterfly garden and a small meeting room where neighborhood organizations can conduct Scout and other community meetings. In addition, planned programs specifically designed for all age groups will be offered.

Alabonson Park offers ample parking and feature a visible law enforcement presence with Precinct 1 Parks Department staff present onsite during normal operating hours.

Alabonson Park will be the cornerstone for neighboring communities from which local families will benefit.

The State of Qatar, through its $30 million Qatar Harvey Fund, has made a gift of $3.3 million for the construction of eight soccer fields in Harris County, five in Precinct 1 and three in Precinct 4.  The soccer fields are designed as water collection basins to mitigate future flooding.  Of the total amount of the gift, $1.3 million has been designated for Alabonson Park.

Planned amenities at Alabonson Park, a 50-acre multi-use facility, also include softball and football fields, parking lots, maintenance facilities, picnic areas, and playgrounds, as well as paved multi-use trails and natural surface trails that could one day connect to additional trail systems along White Oak Bayou.
