Councilmember Gyna Bivens, third from left, presented a certificate of appreciation to Kimberly Hilley, manager of community affairs at TXU, and Danny Smedley, TXU senior sales executive. Park and Recreation Director Richard Zavala, right, joined.

The City Council accepted the donation of 2.98 acres of vacant land from TXU Retail Energy Co. that will be dedicated as public parkland.

The property is south of Berry Street and east of Carey Road in southeast Fort Worth. The donated land will ultimately be incorporated into the existing William McDonald Park. There is an existing water well on the property that will need to be removed or relocated.

Tarrant Appraisal District records indicate the estimated value of the property to be $31,472.

District 5 Councilmember Gyna Bivens accepted the donation on behalf of the city.

“Parkland donations such as this from my former employer enhance the quality of life opportunities for all citizens,” Bivens said.
