OUR MISSION

Patrons for Bellaire Parks is a volunteer-based 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to enriching and enhancing the well-being of the citizens of Bellaire and its surrounding communities by raising funds to improve and expand the City of Bellaire's parks, playing fields, and recreational facilities, programs and services.

BELLAIRE TOWN SQUARE

Patrons' current goal is to raise $3,000,000 to help combine and renovate Bellaire and Loftin Parks into Bellaire Town Square, a showpiece park and town center for the City of Bellaire.

Laurel Street has already been closed to accommodate a new aquatics facility and pool house. Additional features of Bellaire Town Square are to be constructed as funding becomes available. The conceptual master plan calls for Loftin Park to maintain its natural setting with green space plus a new trail system and playground, while Bellaire Park will feature an outdoor pavilion, an expansive events lawn and a skate park in addition to the existing tennis courts and baseball field.

THANKS AND CONGRATULATIONS BELLAIRE!

Thanks to the amazing generosity and enthusiasm of Bellaire residents and businesses, as of the end of 2007 Patrons had raised over $1.4 million in pledges and donations for Bellaire Town Square! In June of 2007, Patrons not only successfully met but exceeded the Wortham Foundation's $500,000 challenge, raising over $630,000 in donations and pledges during the twelve-month challenge grant period, and earning a $250,000 grant from the Foundation. In September of 2007, Patrons fulfilled its commitment to provide the City of Bellaire with $1 million toward the cost of constructing the new aquatics center and poolhouse/community center that will anchor Bellaire Town Square. Now that the aquatics facility is just about completed, future donations and pledges to Patrons will be dedicated to the other features planned for Bellaire Town Square. Please donate now to help us continue the development of Bellaire Town Square, by clicking HERE!

Cindy Siegel, Mayor

"These two parks have served our city well for many decades, but as our city grows, we want to expand this area to become even fore family-friendly for our residents," said Cindy Siegel, mayor of the City of Bellaire. "Bellaire is unique in that it is a small town in a big city. I expect the new Bellaire Town Square will strengthen that small-town identity by serving as a community gathering place within walking distance to homes, shops and restaurants."
