The donation will go toward phase two improvements. Of the donation amount,

  • $56,346.93 was paid by the conservancy directly to a consultant for in-kind conceptual design services;
  • $17,619 is for park wayfinding signs;

The donation is a part of a Memorandum of Understanding between the City of Sugar Land and the Conservancy that requires the Conservancy to raise money for capital improvements.
