LCRA, Bluebonnet Co-Op award $25,000 grant for improvements to Carmine Park
CARMINE — A $25,000 grant from the Lower Colorado River Authority and Bluebonnet Electric Cooperative will help the Carmine Economic Development Corporation fund the construction of handicap-accessible pathways and a new basketball court at Muehlbrad-Albers City Park.
The grant, augmented by $10,000 from EDC reserve funds, will further efforts to expand activities and recreational opportunities at Muehlbrad-Albers City Park, which sits on the south side of U.S. 290 between Loop 458 and Hauptstrasse Street. ›Future plans call for adding attractions along the new pathways to help provide more activities for area children and teens.
“In the absence of a town square, the city park provides a centralized gathering spot for Carmine residents,” said Carmine EDC President Susan Bathe.
“It’s really a jewel in the city,” Bathe said. “It’s so used and so appreciated by the community. This grant is going to be a blessing to us. It will allow us to begin doing the things we want to do down there.”
