A groundbreaking ceremony took place recently at the Linn-San Manuel Veterans Park in partnership with the Edinburg CISD. The new park will provide recreational space for residents of the Linn-San Manuel area, including Brewster School and the various youth groups in the area.
The Linn-San Manuel Veterans Park’s design by SDI Engineering LLC will feature space for fitness and wellness. This includes lighted walking trails with seating areas, basketball courts, softball/baseball fields, children playground, a pavilion, a concession stand, restrooms and an ample parking lot. Synergy Builders of Texas will construct the project.
“The groundbreaking held yesterday is an example of how partnerships working together can make dramatic differences in our community,” Precinct 4 Commissioner Ellie Torres said. “We recognize that this park will spark the quality of life in the Linn-San Manuel community and it will ensure the health of families and our youth. Our unwavering desire is for Linn-San Manuel Veterans Park to serve as a vibrant community showpiece for the many constituencies we serve.”
Torres applauded the efforts of Edinburg CISD, SDI Engineering, Linn-San Manuel Community Investment Corporation, Precinct 4 Chief of External Affairs Velinda Reyes and all the Precinct 4 staff. Even through COVID, when many office operations were ceased or closed down, the team pressed forward to stay on track to bring this park to the community in a timely manner.
“We are proud to be able to partner with the Hidalgo County Precinct 4 to bring a much needed sports park to our kids and to the Linn-San-Manuel community. This is what good government does for communities,” said ECISD Board President Oscar Salinas.
“This project has been a long time coming and we can’t be more thrilled to finally be making this groundbreaking,” said Carlos Guerra of LSMCIC. “We offer our thanks today to Commissioner Torres and Edinburg CISD for working diligently and making this happen.”
Due to current local restrictions, the groundbreaking ceremony was by invitation only.
