Katy's Central Green Park to Celebrate the Hispanic Culture
Hispanic Heritage Month runs September 15, 2023-October 15, 2023, but the party will start later this week in Katy. Central Green Park (located in LaCenterra) is set to host five free events perfect to celebrate the sounds and food of the Hispanic culture.
“We have celebrated Hispanic Heritage month every year Central Green Park has been in operation,” says Yvonne Arceneaux, Willow Fork Drainage District’s Park Director. “Living in the most diverse county in America gives us the opportunity to celebrate all the beautiful and wonderful things each culture has to offer.”
Katy’s Central Green Park is a half-acre public park dedicated to giving Katy families events like fitness classes, free movie nights, live music, and more.
Central Green Park, developed by Willow Fork Drainage District (WFDD,) is located at the south end of LaCenterra at Cinco Ranch. It is a true entertainment destination close to shopping dining, theaters, and libraries.
