Art in the Park

The Parks Foundation Art in the Park Program is a community effort to connect our park system and public areas with visual arts.  Sculptures adorn neighborhood parks, community byways, and local businesses and remind our citizens young and old to enjoy their environs and stay young at heart. There are two pieces on the walking trail in Lions Park that were donated by the Parks Foundation.

A number of locations are perfect for a sculpture and waiting for donors. Colquitt Park, Wilson Park and athletic fields, Sammons Senior Center, Sammons Golf Course, Santa Fe Depot, Jackson Park, and West Temple Park athletic fields are just a few locations still needing art.  Statuary can be selected by the donor and can run from $500 - $5000 depending on size and intricacy.  Donations of any size accumulate and allow the Foundation to purchase additional pieces, at their discretion, as funds become available.  This project is a perfect way to honor or memorialize a parent, child, and/or grandparent.  It is also an excellent opportunity to give the City of Temple a gift in gratitude for the life, home, and community we celebrate here.
