[ARCHIVED] Love Your Parks Day to feature three parks during activity-packed morning

The City of Midland's Parks & Recreation Division is inviting members of the community to enjoy three new parks during Love Your Parks Day on Saturday, March 19.

Ribbon cuttings and activities will be held throughout the morning, starting at 9 a.m. with Fasken Park, which is located at 2301 Humble Drive. The newly renovated park, which features a new playground, exercise equipment, a picnic structure and irrigation system, were made possible through a generous donation by Concho Resources. The Fasken Park celebration will include the planting of trees donated by TXU Energy, in addition to free seedlings that will be given away to participating volunteers. Keep Midland Beautiful and TreeKeepers will be on site to help with the planting project and offer information about recommended trees for the West Texas area. Parks & Recreation will also introduce the City of Midland's new "Bubble Ball" games, which are now available for party rentals.

A ribbon cutting for Midland's newest park will take place at 10 a.m. at Greathouse Park. The park, which is located at 5105 Greathouse next to Greathouse Elementary, will mark the 50th park in the City of Midland’s park system. A “Mommy and Me” walk will take place after the ribbon cutting, with stations along the path to enter drawings for door prizes.

The final ribbon cutting will take place at 11 a.m. at Midland’s new dog park, called “Waggin’ Trail,” at Beal Park, located at 5200 West Wall Street. The Midland Humane Coalition will host activities such as pet adoptions, $20 microchipping, and pet photos by Eternal Bliss Photography. Friendly, vaccinated dogs are encouraged to attend. Local canine favorite Hufflepuff of Wafflebottom will also be on hand at a kissing booth. All proceeds will benefit the Midland Humane Coalition. Trainers will be on hand to answer questions about pet issues, and free t-shirts will be given away to those who like Midland Humane Coalition's Facebook page.

For more information please contact Laurie Williams at or 432-685-7370.
