Portacool Park Grand Opening June 17


After months of work and dedication, the vision for Portacool Park is a reality.
The park will officially open Saturday, June 17, 2017, during a celebration planned
from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. featuring fun for the entire family.
"At Portacool, we are proud to call Center our home," said Ben Wulf, CEO of Portacool,
LLC, the naming sponsor of the park and funding partner. "This project has been 
possible in part because of all of our hardworking employees, both past and present.
We are excited and honored to be able to give back to the city and community that
has provided us a platform to become a globally recognized company."
Portacool Park is the culmination of more than a year of project planning and coordination
of funding from Portacool, LLC, a grant from Texas Parks and Wildlife, the City 
of Center and the Street Improvements for Economic Development. The renovated park
facilities include a quarter-mile walking trail, restroom facilities, azalea garden,
covered pavilion/basketball court, a multi-purpose soccer/football field that will
accommodate CISD athletics and, of course, specially designed cool zones featuring
Portacool evaporative coolers.
"With common vision, cooperation and community partners such as Portacool, it is
 amazing what can be accomplished," Chad Nehring, City Manager, said. "We are so
 pleased with the results of these efforts and cannot wait for everyone to come 
out and enjoy this asset to our community."
Please plan to join Portacool employees and City representatives during the opening
event on June 17 as they welcome you to the newly renovated and expanded park. Hot
dogs, popcorn and more will be available to the public.
