PARK IMPROVEMENTS & PROGRAMMING
Soccer for elementary school kids
The Police Activity League (PAL) has started a free recreational soccer league for 4th and 5th grade elementary students in 78745. Some of our team members have been working with them to help organize the league at Odom. There was such a good response, they had to form two teams at Odom! The games are on Mondays after 6 pm at Odom School Park. Check out their website or just show up.
New ADA swing
Part of our team’s work has involved getting community input about the park. The special education teachers at Odom pointed out that none of the swings work for their special needs kids. We passed their message on to PARD and they installed a new ADA compliant swing at the playground. We’re very excited to make Odom as inclusive as it can be.
Don’t twist an ankle!
On May 4th our team members met with PARD and AISD representatives to determine future steps for improving the park’s track.We’ll keep you updated on our progress. Let us know if you’d like to help.
