Brenda Jill Garcia Memorial Park

The park was dedicated in August, 2020, in memory of Mrs. Brenda Jill Garcia. Mrs. Garcia was instrumental in organizing activities and volunteering her time leading efforts to support community events serving the Bear Creek Plantation.

The park is intended for use and enjoyment of the taxpayers of MUD239, which includes Bear Creek Plantation, Bear Creek Meadows and Austinville neighborhoods. We encourage everyone to use the facilities responsibly. The large and small pavilions may be used on weekends for family events.  Reservations available. Please see details below.
