The State of Qatar, through its $30 million Qatar Harvey Fund, has announced a gift of $3.3 million for the construction of eight soccer fields in Harris County, five in Precinct 1 and three in Precinct 4. The soccer fields will also be designed as water collection basins to mitigate future flooding. Of the total amount of the gift, $1.3 million has been designated for Alabonson Park.
Two soccer fields will be constructed in Alabonson Park.
Planned amenities at Alabonson Park, a 50+ acre multi-use facility, also include softball and football fields, parking lots, maintenance facilities, picnic areas, and playgrounds, as well as paved multi-use trails and natural surface trails that could one day connect to additional trail systems along White Oak Bayou. Construction began on August 5, 2019 with anticipated park completion in 2022.
