Levy Park’s redevelopment has been funded through a public/private partnership. The Upper Kirby Redevelopment Authority—a local government corporation—is managing the construction of the park and funds the improvements in part. The Upper Kirby District Foundation—a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit doing business as the Levy Park Conservancy—has spearheaded private fundraising.  The Levy Park Conservancy will manage and maintain the park and will develop and provide its public programs.


A special thanks to City of Houston Mayors Bill White, Annise Parker, and Sylvester Turner, Joe Turner and the City of Houston Parks and Recreation Department, Houston Endowment, Houston Galveston Area Council, The Project for Public Spaces, and you for envisioning this remarkable restoration. Additional thanks to the Office of James Burnett, Natalye Appel + Associates Architects, Burton Construction, Gunda Corporation, and Biederman Redevelopment Ventures for their excellent work in designing, building, furnishing, and programming a vibrant and memorable public park for all Houstonians.
