“Since November 6, many members of our diverse community have approached my administration about recreational facilities that meet their needs,” Judge George said. “Cricket is one of the most widely played sports in Fort Bend County,” George said.

George said this park was a vision of his even before he took office in January.

“From starting this conversation last November, to seeing children play on it this week, this was a vision and now a fulfilled promise. I encourage all to use this field for many, many years to come. In fact,you may see me there on a weekend practicing as well,” stated Judge George.

“The Cricket Field was a much awaited dream for the Four Corners community and I am proud to be a part of this historic moment. My personal favorite was bringing people together though sports,” said Commissioner DeMerchant.
