Estamos muy emocionados que el parque este completamente construido este año. Mientras vemos a este parque crecer, entendemos la necesidad de tener una Casa de Campo (o un Fieldhouse) en el parque. Este podria ser un lugar en donde miembros de la comunidad pueden participar en actividades fisicas y culturales durante todo el año!
Por favor, acompañenos a una discusión para imaginar(y llevar a cabo) una casa de campo en este nuevo parque.

*English Below*
We're excited for La Villita Park to be finished this year, and as we continue to see this park grow, we understand the need for a Field house as well. This could be a place where community members can enjoy physical and cultural activities year-round, and an opportunity to expand programming as well!
Please join us in a discussion to envision a Field house for La Villita Park.
