Karl Young Park
Karl Young Park, 7800 Stella Link, 77025
This well-loved neighborhood park serves as its community's rallying point. Between 2000 and 2005, neighborhood leaders raised more than $500,000 for improvements to the park. Improvements were completed in two phases and included two age-appropriate playgrounds with shade structures, a shade pergola, a refurbished gazebo, a new tennis court, new walking trails, picnic tables and grills, benches, drainage improvements, decorative fencing and landscaping.
The Houston Parks Board was happy to support such strong neighborhood involvement by helping secure commitments from major foundations and overseeing design and construction of the project. The Karl Young Park renovation serves as a model example of the Neighborhood Partnership Program.
