City revitalizes city park

LA FERIA — It was once just a flat surface of dirt residents used to walk around for exercise.

The city now has transformed it into a park with so much to do for fun and fitness.

Soon the neighborhood, city residents and even visitors will be able to enjoy beach volleyball, basketball, soccer or even a picnic at UngerPark located at the intersection of West Street and Central Street.

That’s not all.

Children and visitors can cool off with the citrus water sprinklers if they like playing with water.

La Feria City Manager Sunny Philip said the park will be ready in about 30 days.

“There’s some landscaping and last-minute touch-ups it needs before people and kids can go play,” Philip said.

The park’s orange theme stems from the Valley’s rich history of citrus farming and agriculture business.
