History of Bicentennial Park

1976  |  The citizens of the Town of Pantego celebrated our nation's bicentennial by creating a community park at the intersection of Smith Barry Road and Nora Lane that featured a playground, walking trail, and a community center named in honor of Jurdiss Rohne (wife of then-Mayor Wayne Rohne).

1993   |  The voters of Pantego approved a half-cent sales tax which funded a new police station, the remodeling of city hall, and further development of Bicentennial Park. These funds, along with Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) funding, were used to purchase adjoining property along the south side of Smith Barry Road. Other improvements included the installation of pedestrian bridges and gabion baskets (for erosion control) along the meandering creek.

2013  |  The Town Council adopted a Park Master Plan (PDF), based on resident input, to serve as a blueprint for further development and expanded uses at Bicentennial. 

2017  |  The Town received a Local Parks Grant from Texas Parks and Wildlife (TPWD), which funded the installation of a splash pad, sand volleyball court, and two demonstration gardens — a butterfly garden and another featuring Texas Native Plants. 

Today  |  Because Bicentennial Park has served as the center of our community for decades, the Town Council and the Pantego Economic Development Corporation (PEDC) Board have a longstanding commitment to ensuring that this facility provides high-quality recreation that meets the unique needs of residents of all ages.
