CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — A downtown park will be getting upgrades. On Friday morning, the Corpus Christi City Council approved a proposal to give Artesian Park a little makeover.
The project is intended to increase the quality of life in the downtown area. The park is used primarily during the Downtown Artwalk which is held the first Friday of every month. Many locals also feel it's an area dominantly used by vagrants. The project will add structured gardens, lighting and art to the park. The walkways will also be resurfaced.
The improvements will cost $150,000 and will be paid out of the monies budgeted in the "Tax Increment Reinvestment Zone Number Three" budget.
The community space was last updated in 2016 when the park got a new irrigation system and some landscaping.
