Washington Park or Jamail Bay Park – fix it and open it

Posted: Tuesday, April 1, 2014 12:00 am

It’s not breaking news — it’s the same story, just another chapter. Washington Park is still closed after Hurricane Ike and was in need of major repairs even before the storm.

Around May 15, 2013, the Galveston Rotary Club donated $100,000 toward the renovation of the park. According to an article in The Daily News (“Offatts overhaul: $2.45 million grant will build Jamail Bay Park,” Dec. 1, 2013), the Jamail Galveston Foundation gave the city of Galveston a grant for $2.45 million, providing the name be changed to “The Lee and Joe Jamail Bay Park,” for the needed renovations.
