Cast Your Vote for Ingrando Park

The National Recreation and Park Association, Disney Citizenship, ABC Television and ESPN are collaborating to revitalize parks across the U.S., including a park project right here in Houston through Parks Build Community!

The mini-pitch court will benefit the Soccer for Success program, an initiative of the U.S. Soccer Foundation in partnership with the Houston Parks and Recreation Department. The initiative engages low-income, at-risk children at city parks and schools in youth development opportunities through the game of soccer.

You can vote for Ingrando Park once a day throughout April! Help ensure that our own Ingrando Park wins the $20,000! Vote daily at: www.NRPA.org/BeInspired.
