Hidalgo County Precinct 3 has been awarded a $30,000 Meet Me at the Park grant from The Walt Disney Company in support of the National Recreation and Park Association and Disney’s combined goal of providing one million kids and families with greater access to play. 

Precinct 3 partnered with Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service on a proposal to upgrade Katrina Park in Penitas. 

“Our proposal competed against others from across the country and was considered to be among the most innovative and impactful projects, which was the criteria for funding,” said Precinct 3 Commissioner Joe M. Flores. 

The upgrades to Katrina Park include adding a safe walking trail, playscapes, and fitness amenities, said Andrea Valdez, County Extension Agent with Texas A&M AgriLife.
