Music Brings Inclusivity to Texas Parks
There are plans for all parks in Harris County to include musical instruments after the success of the James Driver Park - a fully inclusive park in Precinct 2 - which has recently unveiled a number of outdoor musical instruments. The project is part of Commissioner Adrian Garcia's Revive2Thrive initiative which aims to revitalize the precinct by investing in infrastructure and community programs.
Led by Commissioner Adrian Garcia, Harris County Precinct 2 is home to more than 40 parks spread over 4,000 acres with many offering a haven for residents of the county, where precinct staff have endeavored to create an area where children can express themselves with an emphasis on inclusion.
Percussion Play's instruments are featured in most of the parks with colorful Rainbow Chimes, Harmony Flowers, Cavatinas, and Bongo Drums all providing visitors with an area to make music together.
The James Driver Park is the first fully inclusive park in Precinct 2 and Harris County where everything is accessible to people of all abilities.
