Govalle Park has not had any improvements such as a recreation center that has been needed for a very long time. This is a park development that is long over due. Our kids have had to travel or walk to other other neighborhoods for their indoor recreation activities. They have had to cross very dangerous streets such as Airport Blvd. The neighborhood around Govalle Park is growing and there are plans for future development of homes and businesses. Families want to have a safe, clean and comfotable place for their children to play and participate in activites that are positive and motivating. Please sign this petition to bring this issue to the attention of @Parks & Recreation Dept. (pool iron fence is rusty w/peeling paint...restrooms status is out dated in standards& regulations). In addition paint is and is not safe for children to be around. JOIN YOUR NEIGHBORS WHO ARE ASKING FOR A SAFE PLACE FOR THEIR CHILDREN!!!.............We would rather see our youth involve in sports activities as Team Members than see them in the streets involved in gang activities ,as gang members . ..(New Development in from Oct. 2014 )..I am very grateful to the Austin City Council and Mayor for having reponded to allocated funds on next years budget to build a Brand New Swimming Pool at Govalle Park...Thanks for your help Mike Martinez.
