AUSTIN — Recently, the Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission (TPWC) approved a Local Parks Grant for the City of Robstown’s “Robstown Swimming Pool.” The City of Robstown received a $41,250 grant for the re-plastering and retiling of the swimming pool. This grant was a part of the $12.5 million awarded by TPWC to help create and enhance outdoor recreational opportunities. Funding for the Local Parks Grant comes from a portion of the state sales tax attributable to sporting goods and from the federal Land and Water Conservation Fund Stateside Assistance Program.
Senator Hinojosa issued the following statement:
“I am pleased that the Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission has approved a Local Parks Grant for improvements to the Robstown Swimming Pool. The funds will help the City of Robstown meet its recreational needs and improve the quality of life for their residents. Local parks are a vital part of creating a livable community. I applaud Robstown officials for applying for this grant and for their efforts in improving their community.”
