Godwin Park, 5101 Rutherglen, 77096
In 2008, the Houston Parks Board was pleased to partner with the City of Houston and the local community to renovate Godwin Park through a public/private partnership. The tremendous grassroots fundraising efforts by the community ensured many special features were included in the park renovation.
Public funding provided a new playground, picnic pavilion and much needed site work. Private funding provided for the expansion of the new playground, installation of decorative tiles on the new picnic pavilion, brick pavers for the new sidewalk and installation of six new benches around the playground.
