Henderson Park Receives Lone Star Legacy Park Designation
The Texas Recreation and Park Society (TRAPS) honored the City of Brenham’s Henderson Park with the Lone Star Legacy Park designation at the TRAPS Annual Institute on Wednesday, February 16, in College Station, Texas. A Lone Star Legacy Park is a park that holds special prominence in the local community and the state of Texas. Legacy Parks must be at least 50 years old, designated as a public park, and meet at least one of the following:
- The property represents distinctive design and/or construction
- The park is associated with historical events or sites
- The park is associated with events specific to the local community/state
- The park is home to unique natural features
Three parks in Texas received the honor in the eleventh year of the program including Givens District Park, Austin; Henderson Park, Brenham; Hermann Square, Houston. Over the past eleven years, 65 parks have been designated as Lone Star Legacy Parks. These parks have endured the test of time and have become iconic to those who have visited, played, and rested on their grounds. A designation as a Lone Star Legacy Park is one of the highest honors bestowed on a park.
