Why Do We Need This?

As a result of the generous donation in 2011 from the Jerry and Maury Rubenstein Foundation, Evelyn’s Park will soon be a premier park in the City of Bellaire. The Evelyn’s Park Conservancy was formed to raise funds for the park. Along with $2 million dollars from the Conservancy, the City of Bellaire residents voted in November 2013, for a $5 million bond to build the park. The first phase of construction is scheduled for completion in Fall 2016.
