Cole Park is one of Corpus Christi's many public parks. If Corpus Christi wins in the "Meet Me at the Park" voting, the city plans to use the $20,000 grant to improve West Guth Park.
Corpus Christi residents can show what the City’s parks mean to the community by nominating the City for this year’s “Meet Me at the Park” program. Residents can nominate once daily by visiting https://www.meetmeatthepark.org/. Participants must be 18 or older and can vote once a day, every day until April 30. The city that receives the most nominations will receive a $20,000 grant to improve a local park.
If Corpus Christi wins, the money would be used for improvements at West Guth Park, located at 9700 Up River Road. Residents and media are encouraged to share park selfies and the nomination link on social media using the hashtags #MeetMeAtThePark #MeetMeAtMyWestGuth #CCParkies
After April, the city with the most nominations will receive the grant funding. Everyone who nominates a city will be entered into a drawing for a tablet outfitted for the outdoors.
The National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA) is collaborating with The Walt Disney Company, including Disney Citizenship, Disney/ABC Television Group and ESPN, to revitalize parks across the U.S. for a third year with the Meet Me at the Park campaign.
