SAN ANGELO – After an 8-month closure for renovations, Unidad Park will officially reopen to the public at 6:30 p.m. Friday, June 24. The park is located at 3245 Vista del Arroyo near College Hills Blvd..
The park underwent a complete playground replacement according to information from the City of San Angelo but still has many similar items that were enjoyed at the original playground, including a large play set for children ages 5-12, a smaller play set for ages 2-5, a large swing set, the original “Karl’s Fort” and a basketball toss funnel.
New elements include a seesaw and merry-go-round with wheelchair access, two long track rides, a washer pitching area and more.
The project was funded by a grant from the San Angelo Area Health Foundation, 4B half-cent sales tax revenue dedicated to park improvements and donations from private citizens primarily received through San Angelo Area Foundation’s “San Angelo Gives” fundraising event.
