The Upper Kirby District is preparing to transform the park, which covers about six acres on Eastside Street between Texas 59 and Richmond Avenue, through a $10 million project, with construction set to begin in the fall and finish in about a year’s time, said Travis Younkin, the district’s deputy director.
