At Tuesday night’s City Council meeting, Austin Adams, president of the Highland Village Parks Foundation, presented the foundation’s intent to donate $125,000 to the city of Highland Village.
The donation will partially fund the construction of the entrance feature for Kids Kastle, according to a city news release. The entrance will provide a historical visual of the beginnings of Kids Kastle and the importance of Unity Park to the community, as well as an entrance feature to the pavilion and play area.
City staff, the Highland Village Parks Board and the foundation have agreed on a concept plan which will cost about $180,000 and will be built in conjunction with the rebuild of Kids Kastle. The Highland Village Parks Foundation was formed nearly 20 years ago with the purpose of assisting the city to improve and support parks systems and recreational facilities through land acquisition and development, according to the city.
