Opening of Phase I of Cullen Park

Cullen Park opened in 1983 and phase I & II were complete in ’86 & ‘89. The Cullen foundation had donated 10 million to go toward a new park and the West Houston Association was informed that if the money wasn’t applied by a certain time it would be reissued to the Cullen Foundation. So WHA stepped up to convince the City of Houston to get construction started.
