"We have $6 million between a bond program funding as well as monies that were put together as part of the Bridge Mitigation Project and so we have to decide amongst those for parks what’s the best utilization of those funds that will have the biggest impact,” Corpus Christi City Manager Peter Zanoni said.

HALFF Associates is also working on the city’s Master Parks Plan as well as the master plan for Bill Witt Park on the city’s southside.
