Centennial Park Phase II is expected to be complete in February
Centennial Park Phase II construction is expected to be complete by February with outdoor sports expected to begin in the Spring. Upgrades to the detention pond and sewer line system are complete. Construction continues on the parking lot and softball fields. Pearland City Council approved the construction contract in November last year.
Centennial Park currently houses practice fields for soccer with equipment, irrigation, and lighting. The new phase will remove these structures to construct two new, lighted softball fields, sidewalks, utilities, storm drainage and additional parking for the complex, with plans for restroom facilities in the future. The adjacent Fite Road project will provide direct access to the park.
Once the renovations are complete, youth and adult soccer will move from Centennial Park to the Max Road Sports Complex. Girls softball will move from the Dad’s Club to the new softball fields at Centennial Park, which will allow their program to expand as the City’s population increases.
The location of the project and the improvements to the site required a drainage study to recalculate and relocate the floodway of Mary’s Creek to proceed with the planned improvements. The required modifications to the creek channel were performed by Brazoria Drainage District 4 during channel maintenance.
