Current Initiatives

Galveston Community Pool at Lasker Park - Better Parks for Galveston generated support and obtained funding for the construction and maintenance of a community public pool in Galveston. Funds raised have purchased lifejackets and family pool memberships and swim lesson scholarships.

Walking Trails - Better Parks for Galveston is working to create a series of walking trails to encourage exploration of the island, learning about its history and increasing accessible opportunities for physical activity around the community.

Fort Crockett Baseball Complex - Better Parks for Galveston is highlighting the City of Galveston's newest project, the baseball fields at Fort Crockett Baseball Park. Better Parks for Galveston is donating three sets of baseball pads situated against the brick wall behind home plate. Our first "art in the park" exhibit will be displayed as part of the "Turtles About Town" initiative. With the generous support of Moody Bank, three electronic scoreboards will light up the fields.
