The City of Idalou with funding support from the Idalou EDC is applying for a Texas Parks and Wildlife grant.  We greatly appreciate if you participate in a short survey that will help with our application. 

This is the same grant that funded the Idalou Skatepark!

I think a community pool or splash pad would be better. We were not able to buy a membership because of availability and yearly cost. I think all the kids and parents of this community deserve to have a place to cool off and get some great exercise

What will the grant provide?

Can we bring focus to the playground by the high school baseball field. The equipment is broken. We get a lot of visitors that play at the baseball field and their siblings utilize the playground. It is very dangerous if they play on equipment that could cause harm. This playground is a reflection of Idalou.

May we have cameras?

A pond with a walking path around it would very nice out there. I know there are plenty of people that enjoy fishing and I think it would be a great addition to our community.

Need to do some upkeep on the east side playground by the high school softball/baseball fields. It seems to have gotten tossed to the way side.

City of Idalou Thank you for applying for the grant. I personally know the time and effort it takes to fill out all the paperwork and submit a grant. We appreciate it!

New playground equipment for the smaller children to safely play on. The pool needs upgrading. The small children’s area of the pool is crumbling away.

What about an activity center for the older kids. Fox what needs to be fixed elsewhere so everyone can be safe and off the streets.

A real library would be awesome

Love the idea of a multi-purpose court!

Will a gravel walking path around the park be considered?

We need funding for street repair and water drainage on Holly Ave

✅ thank you!

Get involved in the neighborhood folks, unplug and join the community 🎭
