‘Party in the Park’ Held to Celebrate Grand Re-Opening of Mission West Park in Richmond

(Richmond) – More than 100 residents came out to celebrate Fort Bend County Pct. 4 Commissioner Dexter L. McCoy’s “Party in the Park” Thursday evening. The event commemorated the beginning of the renovation of Mission West Park. The event featured the unveiling of the brand-new, state-of-the-art playground designed to create an engaging environment and foster children’s physical, social, and cognitive development.

The grand re-opening ceremony began with remarks by Mission West Homeowners Association Board President Stefanie Chambers who expressed gratitude to McCoy and the Fort Bend County Parks & Recreation Department for their support and commitment to the revitalization process. McCoy emphasized the significance of green spaces and recreational facilities in promoting a healthy lifestyle and fostering a strong sense of community.

“Parks are the heartbeats of our community, fostering connections, promoting wellness, and nurturing the bonds that make Fort Bend County truly special,” he said.

Dozens of children tested the new slides, swings, and climbing structures, while parents and grandparents looked on.

“Whether it's enjoying fresh air, engaging in physical activities, or simply finding solace in the beauty of green spaces, parks provide a much-needed escape from the stresses of modern life and offer a valuable opportunity for relaxation, reflection, and overall well-being. As Mission West Park becomes a vibrant hub of activity, it is anticipated to continue attracting visitors and fostering a strong sense of pride and belonging within the community,” said McCoy.
