Creation of Alabonson Park

Harris County is the recipient of a $1 million urban outdoor grant for its Alabonson Sports and Nature Center project located in northwest Houston. Proposed development for the project includes a football field, softball fields, a soccer field, pavilion with picnic tables, playground, cable run for the blind, native landscaping, a butterfly garden, irrigation, utilities and bike racks.

Alabonson Park is being made possible through a joint collaboration with former City of Houston District A Council person, Brenda Stardig, current City of Houston District A Council person, Amy Peck,  R. Jack Cagle, Harris County Commissioner Precinct 4, Rodney Ellis, Harris County Precinct 1, Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, and Near Northwest Management District.

  Alabonson Park

Funding has been made available through a $2 million appropriation in Harris County Precinct 4 Park Bond funds, a $1-million grant from Texas Park & Wildlife, and the land donation from the City of Houston. We have also received a gift from the State of Qatar in the amount of $1.3 million that has been designated for Alabonson Park. Groundbreaking and major construction began August 5, 2019.

Development of this 50.21-acre multi-use park is being facilitated by a Local Parks Grant from TPWD, and will include lighted soccer, softball and football fields, parking lots, maintenance facilities, picnic areas, playgrounds, paved multi-use trails and natural surface trails.

Approximately 50.21 acres are being transformed into a family-centric venue where anyone can come enjoy soccer, football or softball games as a spectator or participant.  There will be hike-and-bike trails, concessions, a butterfly garden and a small meeting room where neighborhood organizations can conduct Scout and other community meetings. In addition, planned programs specifically designed for all age groups will be offered.

Alabonson Park will offer ample parking and feature a visible law enforcement presence by Precinct 1 Sheriff's Deputies, and Precinct 1 Parks Department staff present onsite during normal operating hours.

After completion, Alabonson Park will be the cornerstone for neighboring communities from which local families will benefit.
