The board of the Rosebud Parks and Recreation has been funding the THRIVE parks improvement plan for over six years through donations, so the Town Square Community Foundation created a GoFundMe to help finish out Phase One. Any funds donated will be used to help finish the creative play areas, fitness stations, and walking trail. Construction on the project has already begun and the campaign has raised over 75 percent of funds needed, but still needs help reaching the finish line. As of June 8, the campaign had a total of seven donations, totalling $670 of the $7,500 goal.

“Thank you in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to me,” stated Matthew Wright, avid community advocate, on the donation page.

Phase Two and beyond look to add a splash pad and other playground equipment. By the end of it, the plan will see restoration of the last two Bow String Bridges in the State of Texas. To donate via the GoFundMe campaign, head to Contact Matthew Wright or Jamie Moeller for additional information.
