This park is big league. Here in Corpus, we like our sports! The area once known as the Grandstands, has been flipped into a state-of-the-art baseball field! At the new Champion Park, your team is now given a field to practice, scrimmage or hold a tryout. The Park offers four turf fields for both boys and girls teams. If you want to play a game, let them know and they’ll even schedule umpires for you to pay at the plate. Each week, there are "Practice Nights" and "League Game Nights" where one can enjoy cold beer, yummy concessions, and outdoor flatscreen TVs from this $2.5 million park renovation.

We’re not talking about the drink, or the chic hotel in Las Vegas. We’re talking about our own downtown development project that is making quick progress. The Cosmopolitan, a $24 million upscale apartment complex, is expected to be completed this month or April! Many of the units already have been leased, and the wait list is long. The luxury complex offers seven different one and two-bedroom floor plans. The property used to be the Old Lichtenstein building. Quite the facelift!

Four String Farm to Appear in Smithsonian Exhibit
Four String Farm of Rockport will be featured in a new Smithsonian Institute exhibit called “H2O Today.” This exhibit explores the diversity and challenges of our global water sources. “H2O Today” will travel to more than 30 cities across America beginning in March, 2016. A photograph by Justin Butts of a “three sisters” garden will appear in the immersive content and digital media portion of the exhibit. The “three sisters” is the ancient Native American Indian technique of companion planting corn, beans, and squash. Justin Butts, owner and founder of Four String Farm, is an innovator and champion of this sustainable gardening technique. The Three Sisters was invented thousands of years ago, but this water-conserving method may play a role in the future of agriculture.
