As the result of another successful annual plant sale on April 13, 2016, the Azalea Garden Club of Vidor donated $500 to the City of Vidor Parks Department for playground enhancement at Pirate Pride Park.

Pirate Pride Park is adjacent to the Vidor Public Library at 440 East Bolivar, and is enjoyed by people of all ages. Often parents bring their young children who enjoy the playing area as the adults get their exercise on the park’s ¼ mile asphalt walking track.

With the Azalea Club’s donation, the Park Department is continuing the upgrades to the playground area with a softer ground material called Kiddy Crush Mulch. This toxic-free, approved material is used in many area parks and playgrounds with a goal of increased safety.

Once again Pirate Pride Park is the recipient of the benevolence of numerous volunteers and local residents who are volunteering their time and donating money to make Vidor a better place of all of us.

If you are interested in donating to Pirate Pride Park, please contact Claude Taylor, Park supervisor, at 409-769-0212, extension 3, or by email at ctaylor@cityofvidor.com.
