A popular City park reopened Monday and it looks a little different than it used to.

West Haven Park on Cliff Mause by Old Brownsville Road completed the first phase of a long awaited improvement project.

The City's Parks & Recreation Department along with Nueces County and the West Oso Independent School District worked together to make the area easily accessible to families with special needs.

They also added a walking trail, basketball courts and a new sports field. The goal was to make it a spot everyone can enjoy.

The park's new additions were made possible by $300,000 in funding approved by Nueces County Commissioners.
