PARK DETAILS
Thomas Park, although smaller than typical community parks serves in that capacity by virtue of the fact that it is the largest park in its respective park zone. Thomas is also one of the oldest parks in College Station. Facilities include a 25 meter swimming pool with bathhouse, two lighted tennis courts, two basketball courts, picnic units, four playgrounds, open soccer field, a lighted jogging track (1 mile) and parking for 27 cars. A shelter/gazebo with a barbecue pit and volleyball court, is available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Partial funding for this park was provided by matching funds from the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, Project No. 48-00-567, in the amount of $184,500.00, and Project No. 48-00-764, in the amount of $75,750.00. Thomas Park is dedicated to Mable Clare Thomas for the work she did for the community. Over 1/2 mile of sidewalks were added in early 1997.
