Dennis Snow with the Greater La Vernia Parks Foundation addresses the La Vernia City Council June 14 regarding possible improvements to the La Vernia City Park.

LA VERNIA -- The Greater La Vernia Parks Foundation continues its efforts to improve the La Vernia City Park, which may see more amenities and changes, following the June 14 La Vernia City Council meeting.

Dennis Snow with the parks foundation addressed the council regarding several items.

Among the foundation’s recommendations approved by the council were:

•Opening the park earlier in the summer, from approximately 6:15 a.m.

•Adding wheels or axles to the bleachers to facilitate moving them when needed.

•Adding a shade cloth to partially cover the playscape.

•Adding a water fountain.

•Adding workout stations around the walking track and adding pet waste stations to the park.

•Removing the front entrance gate and replacing it with a cable closure until parking lot issues are resolved.

Also considered but tabled was the possible addition of swings and/or ADA-compliant swings to the playscape area.

“We were approached about handicap swings,” Snow said after the meeting. “The hardest part is finding space to put them.”

The only place to add them at the moment, he said, is where the volleyball courts are. This would reduce the number of courts from six to five.

“We’ll pursue this a little bit more,” Snow said.

He invites everyone to support the foundation’s annual fund-raiser, the Greater La Vernia Parks Foundation BBQ Cookoff, set for Friday and Saturday, Aug. 10-11, in the city park.

The foundation has brought back a beans cookoff to the schedule on Thursday evening, and will have new entertainment, in addition to the live music Friday and Saturday. Look for more on this event in a coming issue of the La Vernia News.
